The Men’s basketball game took a tough loss to Alderson Broaddus Thursday night 74-69. The Pioneers played exceptionally well, but didn’t pull out the win. The Pioneers shot 41 percent from the field while Battlers shot 37 percent from the field.
Marcus Catney led the Pioneer attack with 19 points on the night, while Aaron Dobson chipped in with 17 points and Jonathan Bevins grabbed a double double on the night with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
The Battlers were led by Mark Summerfield and Carl Buck, both scoring 19 points on the night. On a positive note for the Pioneers Tony Smith who has been sidelined all of the season with injuries played 8 minutes tonight while scoring 4 points and grabbing 4 rebounds, “we are excited for Tony to get back it’s been tough for him because I know that he wants to be out there and now that he is back he just needs to get his legs under him,” said coach Dye.
The Pioneers return to action when Pitt-Johnstown travels to Glenville on Saturday.
