Mohawk rallies to top Shenango
Mohawk (58) Vs. Shenango (50)
Feb 10, 2010
A night after surrendering a big lead, the Mohawk High boys basketball team devoured one.

The Warriors defeated Shenango, 58-50, to earn a hard-fought WPIAL Section 2-AA win.

The Wildcats jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter.

“Obviously, there was a little bit of concern setting in on the heals of the disappointing loss we had,” Mohawk coach Kevin Wrona said about his team’s last-second loss to Summit Academy on Monday.

The Warriors (3-8 section, 6-14 overall) managed to come within 14-12 at the end of the first frame and entered halftime down five.

Wrona said Mohawk focused on running quality plays and sound defense at intermission and eventually went on an 18-7 third-quarter run because of it.

Jake Grim tallied 10 of his game-high 28 points during that stretch. The senior also grabbed seven rebounds.

“He made some individual plays that helped us get to where we wanted,” Wrona said.

Shane Eichenlaub came off the bench and scored 11 points, including two 3-pointers. The junior lost his starting position halfway through the year, but Wrona said he played up to his potential last night.

“Hopefully, he can tap into that a little bit more,” Wrona acknowledged. “He has some ability. He sort of lost some confidence. Hopefully, he got some of that back tonight.”

Sophomore Jordan O’Hara tallied 17 points to lead Shenango (1-10, 4-17), followed by Joe Colavecchia and Brett Chieze with eight apiece.

“We went into a little drought,” Shenango coach Bob McQuiston said of his team’s third quarter. “That seems to be the story for us this year; one quarter is hurting us every game.

“I don’t know if that’s our inexperience, maybe it’s my play calling. That’s something we’ve got to overcome in the future.”
