Hershey boys basketball beat Mechanicsburg 56-27 on Friday, January 19th 2018.

To begin the game, Hershey senior Nick Hines won the tip-off. Although Hershey couldn’t capitalize with a basket, senior Jake Wilson did draw a foul and his free-throw was the first point of the game.

Soon later, Wilson drilled a three-pointer to give Hershey a 4-3 lead and the team never looked back. The Trojans ended the first quarter up 20-6 and only built their lead from there with a 22-8 second quarter.

Hershey took the opportunity to rotate their player lineup in the second half of the game, resulting in a much closer third and fourth quarter (8-5 Hershey and 8-6 Mechanicsburg).

Hershey’s star players of the night were seniors Chase Wallace, Jake Wilson, and Nick Hines, who each scored ten points, combining for more than the entire Mechanicsburg team.

Hershey’s record improved to 14-1 while Mechanicsburg’s record is now 3-14. They are now first and last in the Mid Penn Keystone Conference respectively.

The Trojans’ next game is at Elizabethtown Area High School on January 20th.
