Katie McDonald will have more on the team’s state run in the March 22 issue of the Bethlehem Press.

The NHS girls lost to Boyertown 56-55 on Saturday as Abby Kapp hit a clutch three-pointer with just 17 second left in the game.

The Kids would start out well in this game taking a 14-9 lead after one and extending it to 30-24 heading into the half. But a strong second half by Boyertown saw them chip away at the lead, cutting it to just 44-42 heading into the third quarter.

Senior Aja Blount saw her career end with an impressive 28-point performance in the loss while Victoria Keenan added 13.

The Emmaus boys also got off to a strong start in their game before falling in double-overtime, 78-74 against Carlisle.

The Hornets led 20-14 after one and 33-28 going into the half. But Carlisle would outscore Emmaus 23-18 in the final quarter to force overtime, including overcoming a 10-point deficit as well as a three-point deficit with under eight seconds to go in the game.

Once again, most of the Emmaus scoring went through the Kachelries twins. David had a game-high 34 points, including four three pointers, while Matt added 23, including two threes. Josh Artis had 10 points.
