Deer Lakes let the 3-pointers fly on the way to breaking a five-game losing streak.

The Lancers boys basketball team fired in 10 3-pointers and posted their first victory since opening night, beating Karns City, 57-40, in a nonsection game Monday in West Deer.

The game also was the team's home opener.

Four Deer Lakes (2-5) players made two 3-pointers. Scott Ventura led the Lancers with 17 points. Cory Pampena didn't hit a 3 but made all seven of his free throws and chipped in 11 points.

Deer Lakes held Karns City to three points in the second quarter.

Hampton 77, Knoch 38 — Class AAAA No. 1 Hampton (8-0) started fast and handed host Knoch (6-1) its first loss of the season in a nonsection game. Pitt recruit Ryan Luther scored a game-high 23 points for the Talbots, who led 26-4 after the first quarter.

Jack Obringer added 12 points and David Huber had 11 for Hampton.

David Gallagher led Knoch with 16 points.

Neshannock 87, Ford City 45 — Jesse Sequeira and Blake Bower scored 11 points each for Ford City (4-4), but it wasn't enough in a nonsection loss to Neshannock (6-1), which had 12 players score.

Matt McKinney scored 22 points, and Ernie Burkes had 21 for the Lancers. That duo combined for seven 3-pointers.
