NBC Boys Slip to 8-13 Overall


February 13, 2020

Northern Bedford dug its way out of a 23-5 first-quarter deficit for a wild come-from-behind 77-68 win at home versus McConnellsburg on Feb. 3.

The Panthers trailed by 14, at 46-32 at the half, before outscoring the visiting Spartans 45-22 in the second half.

Hayden Foor had one of the biggest individual nights in NB basketball history with a 41-point effort. Caleb Diehl (19) and Dalton Smith (13) also hit for double figures for the Panthers.

“The kids responded to a ‘wake-up’ call at halftime,” NB coach Randy Meck said. “We obviously played much better basketball in the second half.”

Mount Union 71, NB 58

Northern Bedford was outplayed in the fourth quarter of a close game in falling to Mount Union in a home ICC crossover game on Feb. 5, 71-58.

NB was down five at the half and battled to within 46-43 at the end of three quarters. But, with the game on the line, the visiting Trojans held on with a 25-point fourth-quarter outburst to preserve their win.

"We missed too many easy shots and missed shots we normally make," said NB Coach Randy Meck. “Our defense was not good enough to win tonight.”

Hayden Foor had 23 points and Caleb Diehl added 10 for the Panthers, now 8-12.

Junior Panthers in

ICC Title Game

There was no junior varsity game, but NB’s junior high boys’ team defeated Mount Union 41-25 in the preliminary game. Collin Lloyd had 15 points for the Junior Panthers, who completed a 21-0 regular season and will play in the ICC Junior High Championship Game on Saturday, Feb. 15, at Claysburg-Kimmel.

Southern 79, NBC 61

Northern Bedford jumped out to a 38-34 first-half lead but couldn’t hang on as a poor second half doomed the Panthers in a 79-61 loss at Southern Huntingdon on Feb. 7.

Southern Huntingdon surged ahead in the third quarter and outscored the Panthers by a 45-23 margin in the second half.

Caleb Diehl had 19, points for the Panthers while Hayden Foor (14) and Dakota Claar (11) also hit for double digits for NB.

“We couldn’t finish what we started,” NB coach Randy Meck said. “We just fell flat both offensively and defensively in the second half, it's frustrating.”

NB is 8-13 overall.
