Alex Jones came in with 9 points. Lex Russell and Gabe Muterspaw finished with 6 points each. Gabe McDowell chipped in 3 points. Matt Zimmerman grabbed 5 rebounds, Marty Kreider had an assist and 2 steals, Brandon Updike 2 rebounds and Jacob Jones a deflection.

Coach Steven Gerber said his Massie squad played well in the first half, leading 21-20 at the intermission. Wilmington outscored Clinton-Massie 26-7 in the third period.

“Our kids don’t make excuses, they just go battle,” he said. “Which makes them a lot of fun to coach.”
