Hagerstown buries Shenandoah

MIDDLETOWN — Shenandoah High School was busy Friday night as the basketball team hosted the Hagerstown Tigers.

The Raiders recognized graduates from 1988 and 1989 and it was Social Media Night, but the Hagerstown Tigers weren't feeling very social and put a 60-39 defeat on Shenandoah.

The Tigers used a 20-4 run in the second quarter to take command after Shenandoah took a 13-10 lead early in the quarter.

Following a 3-point basket by Raider guard Austin Cain, Hagerstown scored the next 12 points to lead 22-13. Jared Wininger hit a late 3 to trim the lead to 25-17, but Thorin Stage and Zach Davis hit late baskets for a 30-17 halftime lead.

Stage scored nine of his game-high 21 points in the second. The Raiders were their own worst enemy, missing 8-of-10 from the field and turning the ball over five times. The Tigers were able to knock down eight field goals in the second and only turned the ball over one time.

In the third, the Tigers continued their strong play as Stage and Martin Block combined to make sure there would be no Raider comeback. After leading by 13 at halftime, the Tigers led by 19 after three and were not threatened in the fourth. Hagerstown did not turn the ball over in the third and only had four in the final quarter with many coming after junior varsity players entered the game.

Shenandoah pieced together a couple of short runs but Hagerstown would respond and extend the lead each time. The largest Tiger lead came in the fourth when Mason Stitt nailed a three for a 58-32 edge.

The Raiders were led in scoring by Gavin Griggs, who had 16 on the night. Jared Wininger had nine, Kyle Demick had six for Shenandoah, who fell for the third straight game and are now 8-10 on the season. They will face Elwood on Tuesday for Senior Night, with the JV tip at 6:30. Davis finished with 12 and Block had eight for the Tigers, who are now 11-6 on the season.
