Tyrone played one of the worst games they’ve played all season en route to a 43-34 loss to Bellefonte.

Bellefonte’s stellar zone defense held Tyrone to 34 total points, their lowest of the season.

Junior Dylan Thomas led Tyrone with 12 points and junior Parker Mitchell scored 11. For Bellefonte,  Sophomore Nate Tice scored 14 and Cade Fortney finished with 13 points.

We couldn’t get anything going on offense. Their defense just strangled us the whole game”

— Head Coach George Gripp

The scoring was low, especially for the Golden Eagles. Bellefonte’s zone held Tyrone to only 3 triples, and they weren’t getting much in the lane either.

“We couldn’t get anything going on offense. Their defense just strangled us the whole game,” Added Coach George Gripp.

This is Tyrone’s 6th straight loss and a big reason for this losing streak was the tough schedule of teams they played.

Each team they have played has been over .500 winning percentage, a tough streak of games for the Golden Eagles.

Tyrone falls to 9-9 and out of contention for the Mountain League title. Tyrone plays Bald Eagle on Friday the 3rd and Penns Valley the following Wednesday.
