  • Fourth quarter run lifts Rebels over East Mills

    MALVERN - A 17-6 fourth-quarter run proved the difference for East Mills as South Page rallied from a seven-point deficit to post a 52-50 Corner Conference victory on Friday.

    The loss comes in what East Mills coach Brian Bertini calls his team’s most complete game of the year.

    “This was the first time all year I felt like we actually played to win,” said Bertini. “We played four quarters of basketball. The intensity was better, the execution was better. We got better shots. We just missed some opportunities.”

  • Wolverines too quick for South Page

    MALVERN - The East Mills boys basketball team hit 5-of-7 three pointers and forced eight turnovers as part of a 24-8 opening quarter in a 81-48 victory over South Page on Friday.

    “I think we stunned them without depth,” said East Mills coach Kevin Schafer of his team's opening quarter. “They have a good starting five, but I could tell they didn't want to go to their bench, so we wanted to keep up tempo and use our quickness to wear them down. They tried to pack it in and play a zone to start it and thankfully we were hitting our shots that first quarter.”
