Putting up a shot

Grove City's Marcos Cintron puts up a shot against Sharpsville. 

GROVE CITY — They could not miss.

They did not miss.

While not mutually exclusive, Sharpsville entered The Eagles Nest Friday night and snatched a 80-77 Region 5 victory from Grove City.

“Give credit to (Sharpsville coach Matt) Durisko and his kids,” Grove City coach Chris Kwolek said. “They came out with a great game plan to match our tempo and our push offensively. As bad as our defense was, their offense was that good. They won this game tonight. We didn’t lose this game tonight. They won it! This was a Sharpsville victory no doubt about it.”

The Blue Devils (6-3, 9-5) made 8-of-15 shots in the first quarter, 9-of-19 in the second, 10-of-14 in the third and just 3-of-4 in the fourth to finish the evening making 57.9 percent of their field goals (30-of-52).

In other words, one field goal roughly every 58 seconds.

“I wasn’t math major, but that’s gotta be close to 60 percent,” Kwolek said. “We just didn’t get it done on our end. To their credit, they shot the basketball well and didn’t give in to the pressure we gave them. With the pressure we were putting on them, I thought they’d collapse a little bit, but they were very mature in attacking that. I thought that was the number one reason they shot it so well was because they were so mature and found the open guys.

“They were catching it in rhythm. Every shot they put up, I turned my head and walked away because I knew it was in. I don’t think most of them touched the rim. I saw more splashes from guys in blue tonight than I have in my coaching career.”

Grove City (7-2, 9-6) stood toe-to-toe with the Blue Devils, making 50.9 percent of their shots (27-of-53), but it wasn’t enough thanks to a lackluster effort on the defensive end of the floor.

“We did (shoot the ball well), but you shouldn’t lose when you score 77 points in a game,” Kwolek said. “Definitely not in a high school game. My goodness. We want to push the tempo, but at the same time, we can’t sacrifice on the (defensive) end. I have to challenge the guys into not being one-way players when things don’t go our way in one sense of the basketball court.

“The basketball is in your hands what 5 percent of the time during a typical game? 

You make a basket. Good, you’re excited and you want to get up and pressure, but what happens when you miss a shot? You want to salk? You’re going to give up a 3, because you missed a shot. That’s a big swing every time and that’s what I saw out of us tonight.”

Sharpsville came out firing, grabbing a 20-13 lead late in the first quarter, but Grove City answered pulling to within 22-21 after eight minutes. And after the Blue Devils opened the second quarter on a 9-0 run, the Eagles, again, countered and pulled to 44-41 at the half.

The start of the third quarter saw the visitors use a 7-0 run to open a 51-41 advantage and eventually pushed it to 14 at 69-55 after 24 minutes of action.

“We were playing in the moment for spurts tonight,” Kwolek said. “But it was only for a brief amount of time, because that’s where Sharpsville bit us.”

Grove City eventually whittled the deficit down to 80-77 on a Kade Persinger trey and a pair of Sharpsville miscues in the final minute — a pair of missed free throws and a 5-second inbounding violation — allowed the Eagles to attempt some last second heroics on a missed Marcos Cintron three-pointer from the left wing with 7 seconds left and a Cintron layup 5.6 seconds later.

“It didn’t come down to (Cintron’s misses) by no means,” Kwolek said. “Obviously Marcos made a real big shot for us against Sharon and that was a real nice victory for us, so it didn’t come down to that. Basically for 29 minutes, we sat in the water and didn’t smell any blood. For the last 3 minutes we realized if we didn’t step up the intensity, we had a very real possibility of losing the game.”

The win handed the Blue Devils an emotional win over Kwolek — their former coach who left to come to Grove City last spring — and a bittersweet loss for the Grove City coach.

“It is (bittersweet), but that’s not my basketball team anymore,” he said. “I came to Grove City last spring for personal reasons and that’s Coach Durisko’s team now. Sure, you’d like to say you had a part in that, but my loyalty is here to Grove City. It stings and my loyalty is definitely to the Eagles.”

But roughly a half-dozen of Kwolek’s former players sought him out after the game for hugs and kind words.

“That meant a lot to me,” the Grove City coach said. “When I got there, the program was basically a laughing stock in the region and now they’re going to be competing for a District 10 title. That was my biggest regret in leaving them. But it did mean a lot for them to come find me. Something I did while I was there must’ve stuck with them.”

Jackson Doyle led all scorers with 29 points, while Brayden Fry finished with 17 points and 5 rebounds. Luke Levis tacked on 13 points and 9 boards for Sharpsville.

Persinger paced the Eagles with 23 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds and 3 steals, while Caden Mattocks and Cintron evenly split another 34. Logan Lutz lent 14 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists.

“From a Grove City standpoint, we need to get better,” Kwolek said. “We are not out of it. We have a lot (region games) in front of us. I’m sure a lot went into (the loss) ... not having school (Friday), knowing there was a little bit of a break before Hickory comes in (tomorrow) and we had that lookahead game.”

NOTES: Sharpsville finished with a 38-16 advantage on the glass, but had 20 turnovers. ... Grove City managed just 10. ... The Eagles finished with 14 assists and 3 blocks (Cintron, Mattocks and Danny Timko). ... The loss snapped a 5-game winning streak for Grove City.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

• West Middlesex 49, Greenville 42  It wasn’t West Middlesex High girls’ basketball team’s best performance this season – Coach Mike Williams gave Greenville credit for that – but the Ms. Reds managed to “git ‘er done.”

Makennah White went for a game-high 16-point, 16-rebound double-double and Carlie Beatty bounced off the bench to contribute 10 points and snare 7 caroms as West Middlesex won, 49-42, in an inter-region affair.

“The only close game we’ve had this year, we lost that buzzer-beater with Harbor Creek (44-41),” Middlesex mentor Williams said. “This is the first time we really had to put up and get at it. And we need games like that. I think it shows some of our inconsistencies, which we will definitely work on.”

Monday night at West Middlesex, there were 4 ties and a handful of lead changes. But Middlesex extended a 38-34 lead entering the final frame by outscoring Greenville, 11-8. The 6-foot-2 White and 5-11 Beatty bucketed 5 and 4 points, respectively.

The Ms. Reds (14-1) – the 3-time District 10 Class 2A titlist who captured their 23rd consecutive home floor win – also got 10 tallies from Taylor Tomko, who tossed in 2 treys – and Karsyn Rupert recorded a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double, while Emily Anthony annexed a team-high half-dozen assists. 

Ellie Kalchthaler connected for a game-high 18 points – equalling her season high – for Greenville (10-4), while Nina Cano contributed 12 points. The Lady Trojans trailed 24-21 at halftime despite turning it over 13 times, offsetting 8-for-16 shooting.
