Burrell's balanced offense overwhelmed host St. Joseph in a nonsection game Wednesday night.

Four players finished with double-digit point totals for the Class AA Bucs (5-1), who set a season-high scoring mark in their 72-49 win over the Class A Spartans (3-3).

Cole Bush led Burrell with 18 points, Alex White added 13, and Matt Hess and Pete Spagnolo each had 11.

John Arcuri fueled the St. Joseph offense with a 24-point performance that included a 9-of-10 showing at the foul line.

Deer Lakes 50, Winchester Thurston 19 — The Lancers (4-2) held Winchester Thurston (1-3) to just five points in the first half of the nonsection contest.

Tim Jaczesko scored a game-high 19 points, and J.J. Kowalkowski contributed 13 for Deer Lakes, which had nine players score. Kowalkowski also had 10 rebounds and five steals.

West Shamokin 58, Highlands 50 (OT) — Highlands (0-7) rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to force overtime but fell short in the extra period during a nonsection home game. Kaison Branch scored a team-high 19 points for the Golden Rams.

Anthony Rocco led West Shamokin (3-3) with 23 points.


Plum 37, Fox Chapel 21 — Thomas Zumino's 10-7 win over Darrius Booker in the 126-pound weight class started a critical run for Plum (1-1, 1-1), which claimed five of the final six bouts in the Section 3(B)-AAA match. Mike Walkup followed with a pin, Eric Green earned a major decision, and Anthony Zummo and Zach Martin secured decisions.

Jared Rice, wrestling at 113 pounds, delivered Fox Chapel (3-4, 0-2) its only pin of the match, which started with the 170-pound weight class.


Pine-Richland 8, Plum 3 — Zachary Richey netted a hat trick and had four points to lead Pine-Richland (7-2) over Plum (3-5-1) in PIHL Class AA play.
