In a matchup that has all the makings of a soon-to-be Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) rivalry, Penn State Harrisburg made the short trip down Interstate 83 and defeated York, 70-65 on Wednesday, Dec. 4 in York.
After being handled by the Spartans at home exactly 51 weeks earlier, the Blue & White returned the favor by earning an historic win at Charles Wolf Gymnasium: Its first ever in the CAC, its new league this season.
Penn State Harrisburg (3-4, 1-1 in the CAC) was led by do-it-all senior captain Will Doyle and junior Alberto De Los Santos. Doyle scored 15 points, dished out a game-high five assists and corralled four rebounds while De Los Santos made his first start of the season a strong one, netting 13 points and grabbing a team-high five boards.
The Lions shot well from distance in the early going, with De Los Santos, Doyle and freshman point guard Marquese Daniels connecting from beyond the arc on three of the team’s first four field goals.
After trading the advantage six times in the game’s first 10 minutes, the Spartans (0-3, 1-6) took their largest lead of the night when Dalton Myers hit a 3-ball to put York up 21-17 with 8:12 remaining in the first half.
Lion sophomore Jamaal Dubose answered with a 3-pointer of his own on Penn State Harrisburg’s next possession to help spark a pivotal 11-3 Lions run over the next 3:46.
