HUNTINGDON — Bald Eagle Area suffered its second straight loss, this one a 69-54 defeat in boys basketball action to Huntingdon on Wednesday night.
After playing a triple overtime game against Penns Valley on Monday and having most of its practice wiped out by bad weather on Tuesday, Bald Eagle Area (11-3) wasnt able to come up with the hustle plays that have been the Eagles hallmark this season.
Meanwhile, the Bearcats (9-5) did.
We just got off to a slow start tonight, BEA coach Bill Butterworth said. Were not taking anything away from Huntingdon , they played a good game tonight. They were getting second and third opportunities, they out-rebounded us. ... Tonight they out-hustled us in every aspect of the game.
Brandon Gettig led BEA with 18 points but the Eagles couldnt slow down Nate Gearhart who led all scorers with 27 points.
