North Penn Life - - Sports - By Mike Cabrey mcabrey@jour­nalregis­ter. com

Jared Arm­strong was in a scor­ing groove from the start Mon­day night.

The Christo­pher Dock sopho­more guard hit a trio of three-point­ers in col­lect­ing 15 points in the first quar­ter and fin­ished with a game-high 25 as the Pioneers cruised past host Cal­vary Bap­tist for a 71-27 non­league vic­tory.

“I was shocked that I was hot tonight,” said Arm­strong, who con­nected a to­tal of five times from be­yond the arc. “I mean, I lifted weights yes­ter­day, so I’m just glad we got the win and my team­mates got me the ball. That was the im­por­tant part.”

The win capped off a dom­i­nant ef­fort for Dock bas­ket­ball on the night, as the Pioneer girls had lit­tle trou­ble in de­feat­ing the Lady Warriors 51-15 in the open­ing game of the dou­ble­header.

Mat­ta­syn Shisler was one of three Dock girls in dou­ble fig­ures, scor­ing 13 points as the Pioneers jumped out to a 20-1 lead. llyvia Lon­gacre knocked down three three­p­oint­ers and had 12 points, while hereece Seuren added 10 points for Dock (12-7, 8-6 Bi­cen­ten­nial Ath­letic League), which won its sec­ond straight.

“I feel like tonight we just worked well to­gether and just con­nected with each other,” Shisler said.

Brandice Cle­mens and sicky Casatelli each scored five points to lead the Lady Warriors (11-6, 10-1 ACCAC)

“I was dis­ap­pointed in the lack of en­ergy our girls showed. We had a church re­treat this week­end, so they were away and tired and all that,” Cal­vary Bap­tist coach Scott Bergey said. “But if you’re go­ing to be a good player and a good team, you’ve got to over­come that.”

For the Dock boys, Bren­nan Ad­dley added 17 points as the Pioneers (13-7, 11-3 BAL) used a 21-9 run in the first quar­ter to take a 29-13 ad­van­tage af­ter the first eight min­utes.

Dock pushed its lead to 36-15 af­ter a Lan­don Lein­bach free throw be­fore Jaron hicin­ski hit a three, but the Pioneers ended the half by scor­ing the last 11 points — Chris­tian Hotte’s bas­ket of a re­bound mak­ing it 47-18 at the break.

Arm­strong opened scor­ing in the third quar­ter with a three — his fifth of the game — and the Pioneers’ lead never got be­low 30 the rest of the way.

“I prac­tice them a lot, so that’s my goal,” said Arm­strong of his three-point shoot­ing. “I shoot 1,000 shots a day.”

hicin­ski paced Cal­vary Bap­tist (6-12, 6-5 ACCAC) with nine points, while Tyler Ni­chols chipped in seven.
