When the Lewisburg Green Dragons faced the Central Columbia Blue Jays in Wednesday’s Heartland-II matchup, it was just your typical matchup between the two programs.
However, a game-high 26 points and 10 rebounds from Sam Allen helped propel Lewisburg to a 60-56 victory.
Jesse Flannery added 14 points for Lewisburg (9-0, 4-0 HAC-II), which needed to hold off a late rally by Central (6-2, 1-2) to remain undefeated on the season.
“It was a typical game at Central where two teams played extremely hard,” said Lewisburg coach John Vaji. “We got up by 10 points in the fourth, but Central made a couple of threes and we pulled out a hard-fought victory.”
Kevin Krouse led the Blue Jays with 17 points.
