Scotties sink Irrigators, 63-46

It looks like a lay-up … but it wasn’t! Philip’s #25 Nick Heeb looks as though he’s making a lay-up when actually he passed the ball at the last second over the #33 Dana Kerns, who in turn made a jump shot.

The home crowd cheered as the Philip boys’ basketball team displayed its season-honed talents against the Newell Irrigators on Monday, February 13.

The Scotties had the lead at the end of the first quarter, only to be on the other side of the score at half time. The end of the third quarter bragged a one point Scottie lead. Then, the Philip team members caught fire to burn up the scoreboard and end the game 63-46.
