REBOUND: Raiders stop Comets, 50-41, after suffering first loss

MDTgirlsBBALLThe score of a game doesn’t tell the whole story. A game between Middletown and Penn Manor on Saturday, Dec. 28 proves that. 

The teams met during the Hershey Tournament consolation game in Hershey after Middletown suffered its first loss of the season to Gettysburg the night before.

But on Saturday the Blue Raiders jumped out of the gate fast, but also aware. That awareness helped Middletown (8-1) spot the Comets’ weaknesses early, and capitalize on both their opponent’s mistakes and their own opportunities.

Jey Rivera led the Raiders with 19 points, and Ja’lynn Burton-Jones added 18 points against Penn Manor.

Penn Manor (1-8) outscored the Raiders in three of the four quarters, but a stunning second quarter put Middletown over the top.
