Raiders hold off Chambersburg, fall to red-hot Red Lion

Posted

jumpshot1 8 14The Middletown boys’ basketball team stepped out of Capital Division play and earned a 1-1 split in post-Christmas action last week.  

The Blue Raiders topped Chambersburg on New Year’s Eve day with a 62-59 decision, but fell to non-league opponent Red Lion by a 62-37 score on Saturday, Jan. 4.

A division matchup with Steelton-Highspire was postponed because of snow.

The Raiders slipped to an overall 4-6 record for the season with divisional games against Susquenita, Steelton-Highspire and Camp Hill scheduled.  

Middletown 62, Chambersburg 59

Beau Gantz, the former Middletown junior varsity coach who had coached at Harrisburg and Lancaster after departing Middletown, brought his Chambersburg Trojans to the Raiders’ gym with just one win to show for their efforts in the current season.

And despite a second half rally that was nearly successful, Gantz was denied a second victory as the Raiders held on for a tense triumph.  

Ladhellis Charleston scored a team-high 16 points while Dylan Danilowicz and Cody Fox recorded 13 each to key the Middletown victory. Ryan Martin scored a game-high 17 points for the Trojans (1-10).
