BERWICK — BOYS BASKETBALL

Berwick 62, Selinsgrove 49

A 19-point first quarter was too much for the Seals to overcome as Selinsgrove opened the year off with a loss against the Bulldogs.

“The first quarter really hurt us,” first-year Selinsgrove coach Mike Stebila said. “We dug a hole we just couldn’t get out of.”

Ethan Fadale led the Seals with a 16-point performance while Andrew Sickle added nine and Isaiah Rapp scored eight.

Berwick took a 38-19 lead into the half and were led by Matt Dalo’s 19 points.

Selinsgrove will look to get the first win of the year on Friday as it hosts Central Mountain.

Five players scored in double figures for Shamokin (2-0, 1-0 HAC-I). Austin Stine led the way with 16 points.

Milton (1-3, 0-1) got 10 points apiece from Ethan Baker and Travis Krall.
