Boys Hoops: Avon Lake tops Berea-Midpark with 3rd quarter surge

by Don DiFrancesco

AVON LAKE, OHIO– Avon Lake continued their late-season surge, defeating Berea-Midpark 58-48 in a Southwestern Conference game on Tuesday evening. The Shoremen (12-8, 10-6 SWC) have won four of their last five games. Berea-Midpark (7-12, 5-11 SWC) has dropped four straight.

Other than the third quarter, the game was evenly played. Avon Lake, behind two late 3-point shots by sophomore guard Tanner Russell, stretched a narrow two-point halftime edge to an 11-point lead after three quarters. The Shoremen converted 10-of-13 free throws in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.

Avon Lake was celebrating senior night, and senior guard Jordan Ball made his final regular season home game a memorable one. He topped all scorers with 17 points. Two sophomores, Nick Marsh and Nate Sidloski, also got in on the fun, scoring 12 points each for the Shoremen.

Berea-Midpark, playing almost exclusively with underclassmen in the latter part of the season, got nine points each from junior Trevor Bycznski and sophomore Jordan Cupach.
