LDbballphotoWhen Waynesboro faced off against Lower Dauphin in a boys’ basketball game, it hoped to do what it does best – score from the perimeter and press on defense.

But Lower Dauphin would have none of it. Instead, the Falcons took control and forced the Indians to play basketball Lower Dauphin style. The Falcons beat Waynesboro, 68-45 on Saturday, Jan. 4 in the fifth annual Rhoades Foundation Classic at Lebanon Valley College, Annville.

“We didn’t make Lower Dauphin as uncomfortable as we wanted to,” said Waynesboro Coach Tom Hoffman. “They kind of dictated the way the game was played and that’s a credit to them. They’re a very good basketball team that’s well-coached.”

The Falcons’ Tommy Bowen earned a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Luke Rutledge posted 11 points and Trey Klock added 9.

Waynesboro (8-2) fired two shots from downtown to take an early 6-2 lead, but Bowen helped put the Falcons back in control with an assist on a Colton Nagy 3-pointer and back-to-back baskets to give Lower Dauphin a 9-6 lead.

The Falcons (8-2) didn’t look back, keeping the lead for the rest of the game.

Up 17-12 in the second quarter, Lower Dauphin went on a 12-0 that found Kaylor Kulina, Ryan Naccarato, Matt Seip, and Bowen netting points for a 29-12 lead.

Waynesboro players used to scoring bucket after bucket were muffled and silenced by the Falcon defense. Shaquill Smith was able to sink four 3-pointers and score 16 points for the Indians, and Devonte Montgomery added 10 points . . .
