WILLIAM TENNENT HIGH SCHOOL: 36
The Lions Boys Basketball team waited anxiously all day Saturday to know if they were even going to get the chance to play William Tennent in the Championship game of the Hatboro Horsham TIp-Off Classic. Around 12:30 they found out they would be playing, and they showed up ready to go. The Lions got off to a great start shutting out the Panthers 12-0 in the first quarter. Things continued to get better as in the second quarter the Lions outscored Tennent 17-9 to take a 29-9 halftime lead. In the second half Tennent came out and tried to pressure the Lions into a quick transition game, but it didn't work. The Lions were able to come away with a 55-36 win. The win claims the 2nd title in the last 3 years for Lower Moreland in the HH Tip-Off Classic.
Forrest Keys led the Lions in the championship game shooting 7-8 from the field and scoring 17 points while snatching down 6 rebounds. Shane Cohen also reached double figures with 12 points and 4 rebounds. Jordan Zoubroulis led the team with 5 assists and also chipped in with 5 rebounds himself. The Lions showed unselfishness all weekend and played as a team. They will open up Bicentennial League action on Thursday @ Church Farm. Then come right back Friday night at home vs. Upper Moreland.
