Tyrone Junior High Summer Basketball

The Olympians team made a concerted effort in Week Three games of the Tyrone Area Junior High Summer Basketball League, winning a pair of basketball games that catapulted them from a three-way tie after the second week into an undisputed hold on first place, at least until this week’s games.
Olympians solidly decisioned Team USA in the opening game of the day on Thursday, July 8 by a 35-27 count. Travis Peterman fronted the winners with 16 points, while Team USA was led by 10 points from Nick DeGol.
In the second game, Olympians behind a team-high 14 points from Josh Bradley defeated Gladiators 30-22 to raise their record to 4-2. Bruno DeGol pumped in a game-best 17 points that temporarily set the league standard for points scored. Peterman’s 16 points in Game One tied the effort by Josh Bradley in Week One.
The points’ mark didn’t stand for long however. Bruno DeGol scored all of his team’s 24 points in the final game of the week in Gladiators’ 33-24 loss to Team USA. Nate Dane scored 12 points to lead Team USA to the victory that set their record at 3-3, while Gladiators fell to 2-4.
This week’s games on Thursday evening, at the Tyrone Area High School gym, will begin at 7:30 p.m.
