Forestville Wins Third Straight

FORESTVILLE – The Forestville Hornets (4-7, 2-0) took their lumps early in the season as they went 1-7 in non-league games.

Those early-season woes are paying off now as the Hornets defeated Clymer (6-6, 2-4) on Tuesday, 51-41, to win their third straight in non-league boys basketball.

“We played some close games early in the year and definitely took some lumps,” Forestville coach Ralph Jackson said. “We are learning from it and we are getting better each game.”

It took a fourth-quarter comeback on Tuesday for the Hornets to remain perfect in the league and Jake Nosbisch was a key reason for the win as he scored all 10 of his points in the fourth quarter. The Hornets shot 11 for 15 from the charity stripe in the final frame as Nosbisch went 5 for 7 and Dylan Szumigala went 5 for 6.

The Pirates jumped out to a 10-8 lead after the first quarter and held a 23-15 halftime edge. The Hornets began their comeback in the third as they cut the deficit, 28-26, heading into the fourth. From there, the home team outscored Clymer, 25-13 for the win.

Caleb Makuch had 11 rebounds while Wayne Hartloff had 10 board and three blocks in the win. Szumigala also had five assists.

For the Pirates, Mitch Einink led the way with 14 points while Jake Wiggers had 11 points, seven rebounds and two assists. Jared Dunwald had eight rebounds in a losing effort.
