High school boys’ basketball: Bald Eagle Area tops Hollidaysburg

Bald Eagle Area is closing in on the District 6 Class AA playoffs and may be peaking at the right time.

The Eagles picked up a 61-57 boys’ basketball win Monday night over Class AAAA Hollidaysburg and coach Bill Butterworth couldn’t be happier with the ‘W.’

“Its definitely a confidence booster,” Butterworth said. “It seems like we are peaking now and I hope it stays. Any time you beat a AAAA school its a great accomplishment.”

BEA got a game-high 16 points from Bryce Greene, who went 8 for 10 at the free throw line. The Eagles had three other players score in double figures: Brandon Gettig (12), Jason Jones (15) and Ryan Dyke (11).

The Tigers had a trio of players with double-digit scoring in Brian Adams (14), Max Sheetz (13) and Nick Consiglio (13).

BEA will play the winner of Tuesday’s game between Central Cambria and Bishop McCort in a District 6 Class AA quarterfinal at the site, time and date to be determined.
