Farrell 75, Wilmington 59
Farrell (75) Vs. Wilmington (59)
Jan 25, 2008
The Greyhounds took their best shot at District 10/Region 2-AA leader Farrell, but came up short.

The final score, however, was a far cry from Wilmington’s 78-24 loss to the Steelers earlier in the season.

“We didn’t do a bad job tonight, they’re just so tough to defend against,” Greyhounds’ coach Will Harris said. “Our game plan was to force perimeter shots, but they’re just such a threat offensively, if you limit them to perimeter shooting, they knock down 3s, if you come out and guard them, they kill you in the paint.

“They’re just a coach’s nightmare because they’re very hard to guard.”

Farrell (11-0, 15-3) had eight treys in all, including three by Marcel Holden, who finished with 21 points.

Shane Wagner offset that performance with 21 points for Wilmington, including five 3-pointers. Ryan Foht added 10 and Dallas Hartman eight.

“We had problems getting the ball inside,” Harris said. “They are so active defensively, we were forced to start our offense 30 feet away from the hoop instead of 15.”

Wilmington will play the remainder of the season without senior guard Chris Burns, who was averaging 8.8 points per game. Burns, a University of Pittsburgh football recruit, left the team for personal reason earlier this week, according to Harris.

Despite the loss, the Greyhounds (6-5, 9-10) remain in the hunt for a playoff berth going into today’s crucial game at Sharpsville.
