Neshannock rolls past Shenango
Neshannock (74) Vs. Shenango (43)
Dec 19, 2012
The Neshannock High boys basketball team had perfection on the line last night.

The Lancers were up to the challenge, delivering at 74-43 road win against WPIAL Section 2-AA rival Shenango.

“Offensively, we played pretty well,” Neshannock coach John Corey said. “Defensively, that first quarter, we played poorly. Shenango came out and shot the ball really well. In the first half they were 6 of 8 on threes.”

Shenango (0-2 section, 1-4 overall) led 19-16 after the first quarter. Neshannock (2-0, 5-0) answered back with authority, outscoring the Wildcats, 58-24, the rest of the game.

Matt McKinney bucketed 23 points for the Lancers including three 3-pointers. Tyler Haswell grabbed 20 points with a 4 of 5 mark from the free-throw line. Ernie Burkes swished three 3-pointers in an 18-point effort.

“It was a steady performance offensively throughout the four quarters,” Corey said. “It took us eight minutes to wake up on the defensive end. We made a couple of adjustments. The guys definitely stepped up and played the way we expected them to in the second half.”

Attempts to reach Wildcats coach Bob McQuiston for comments and statistics were unsuccessful.
