Rollers serve notice on Spartans, division

Posted


SHbasketballIt was a long week for the Steelton-Highspire boys’ basketball team – taking on Milton Hershey, West Perry, Camp Hill and Northeastern would seem tiring, but the Rollers didn’t lose steam, winning each game.

Early in Steel-High’s match-up against Milton Hershey on Thursday, Dec. 19 it was hard to tell if the Steamrollers could pull out a win in Hershey. Last year, a loss on the Spartans’ court meant the Rollers had to share the Mid-Penn Conference Capital Division crown.

And while the road to redemption Thursday night was a bit rocky early on, the Rollers intensity and focus helped lift them to an 82-58 win over the Spartans.

Anthony Wright led the Rollers (6-2, 5-0 in the division) with 18 points. Rameik James added 12 points, hitting four of the Rollers’ seven 3-point baskets. James Warren also scored 12 points, and Broderick Simmons-Settles, Anthony Ferguson and ShaQuin McNeil each posted 9.

Milton Hershey (4-4, 3-2) off to a good start in the first quarter, while the Rollers’ game was a bit slow and unsteady. The Spartans took a 20-14 lead after the opening quarter.
