Over the holiday break, the Hawks were taking care of business in The Nest. The boys basketball team hosted Erie McDowell, Worthington Kilbourne, and St. Francis DeSales. They were all teams who are on the outside of the WPIAL.

The Hawks worked hard over the two days to bring home the championship and send the teams packing without a trophy.

The championship game was held at 4 p.m. on Dec. 27 against Erie McDowell. The score was close all game, but as the clock ticked down the final score remained 74-67 and the Hawks left with the win. Erie McDowell homes the number 12th player in the class of 2021, William Jeffess. So, the Hawks had their hands full with the 6’7″ standout. (Jeffess is three inches taller than Knickers, the 6’4″ steer). At the end of the game, Alex Mullen was named MVP and Ryan was named All-Tournament Team.

Erie McDowell’s path to the championship was to first beat St. Francis DeSales. On Thursday, Dec. 27 at 2:30 p.m. Erie McDowell and St. Francis DeSales tipped off the tournament and began play. The final score was 58-51 as the Erie McDowell Trojans made a comeback and stole the win.

The Hawks had to defeat Worthington Kilbourne at 4 p.m. in order to advance to the championship. Bethel Park Black Hawks took the floor and prevailed over the Wolves with an 80-60 win.

When asked how he felt on the game, Ryan Meis answered with, “It was a big win for us, and everyone contributed in a big way to help secure the win. It was a great team win.”

If you want to see the boys in action, catch them on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at Mt. Lebo as they tip off at 7:30 p.m. for a huge section game.
