BOYS: Team Hartle 123, Team Cook 117

Team Cook trailed by as many as 18 points and came roaring all the way back before Team Hartle was able to put the game away behind Miller’s 32 points.

Cam VanWormer (Oil City), who scored 15 of his 20 points in the second half, hit a shot to tie the game at 101-101, but Team Cook wasn’t able to get over the top.

Aiden Hartle (North Clarion), Tanner Fox (St. Marys), and Miller helped Team Hartle push back ahead, but not without another late Team Cook push.

Payton Johnston (Union) was fouled shooting a 3 with 33 seconds left and Team Cook trailing 119-115. Johnston knocked down 2-of-3 from the line and Miller came down on the other end and was fouled with 18 seconds left, making both free throws to put Team Hartle back up four.


Preston Alfieri (Smethport) had a 3 go in-and-out on the next possession for Team Cook, and Team Hartle got the rebound and the ball out to Hartle in transition for an easy layup to seal the deal.

Hartle finished with 28 points for Team Harte, which knocked down 14 3s (Team Cook had 17), one of five players for his team in double figures. Fox finished with 20, while Adam Straub (Elk County Catholic) had 17 and Connor Finch (Sheffield) had 11.

Cook had a monster game in the loss with a game-high 33 points, while VanWormer was second on the team in scoring with 20. Also in double figures for Team Cook were Parks Ordiway (Warren) with 14 points, while Camdyn Allison (Cameron County) had 13 points and Aaron Sorg (Ridgway) and Johnston finished with 12 each.
