The Blue Raiders beat East Pennsboro, 49-47, on Jan. 23.

A 14-3 advantage in the third quarter was the difference. The Blue Raiders trailed 32-27 at halftime.

It was a different story Jan. 26 when the Blue Raiders visited Camp Hill. They didn’t reach double digits in any period and fell 63-30, with standout Diamond Bragg scoring 26 for the Lions (15-4 on the season).

Fitzpatrick had 10 points and 12 rebounds. Nester added 8 points, Koser had 6, Keller had 4 and Noon added 2.
