Raiders salvage rough week with 64-32 rout of Northern

Posted


Middletown’s losses at East Pennsboro and Bishop McDevitt were really no major surprises last week. After all, both teams were unbeaten when the Blue Raiders faced them on their home courts.  

A loss to Northern York, however, was a real disappointment to the team and Coach Chris Sattele. That game went into overtime, and the visiting Polar Bears won it on a last-second 3-point shot, even though the Raiders should not have let it come down to that final play.  Middletown (3-5, 2-3 in the Mid-Penn Conference Capital Division) failed to secure a victory in the worst way, making just 13 of 27 foul shots in the game in the heartbreaking setback.  

But a big win at West Perry saved the week from being a disaster for the victorious Middletown squad. The Raiders broke a stretch of bad luck on the Mustangs’ home court, routing their hosts, 64-32.
