Roaders Rumble With Panthers








Both Bradford and North have struggled this season, but both teams laid it on the line on Friday night. They still have a chance to move up in the league standings – and both teams are playing for pride. Fans were treated to a game with several lead changes and ties as the two teams battled on the hardwood. The teams had contrasting offensive styles where North seemed determined to drive the ball into the teeth of Bradford defense, while Bradford got the most traction with the 3 point shot – nailing an impressive 10 treys on the night.

It was a tight game with several lead changes and several ties.  North hit a trey late that gave them a little distance.  And when Bradford tried to foul, North did well from the line.  It was a 59-49 North victory. 

Scoring for Bradford: Smith 21, Millhouse 7, Swagg 14, Branson 5, Phillips 2. Branson was the glass cleaner for the night with 7 rebounds. Swabb lead the team with 5 assists, Smith lead the team with 4 steals.

Railroaders Slow Start Dooms Them Against South







Bradford got off to a sluggish start against the Twin Valley South Panthers. But the other 3 quarters they played even with the Panthers. But that cold start gave the Panthers an early lead and the RailRoaders had to play catchup the rest of the night. Still they got a hot hand later in the game and made a good run at the Panthers. But out of the gate, they missed 4 free throws and until late in the quarter they could not hit a shot from outside. The Panthers capitalized with a 17-9 lead at the end of one.  Bradford made a solid run at the end of the 3rd quarter and had the deficit down to 2 points late in the quarter.  But South fended off the Railroader charge for 62-54 win.

Scoring for Bradford: Smith 12, Millhouse 14, Swabb 8, Branson 8, Phillips 12.
Scoring for TVS: Marker 1, Bassler 5, Wells 8, Bowman 20, Meyers 5, Cottingim 8, Lovely 15.
