BOYS BASKETBALL: Murphy powers Souderton past North Penn
Austin Murphy used a hot start to score a game-high 19 points and the Souderton boys basketball team pulled away in the second half to defeat host North Penn, 53-38, in a Suburban One Continental Conference matchup Thursday night.
“I was just feeling it tonight,” Murphy said. “And our team did a great job of sharing the ball, as we always do. And we just pulled out a tough win.”
Murphy collected seven of Souderton’s 12 points in the first quarter, then added another seven in the third, which ended with the Indians (9-5, 6-2 conference) up 39-29. That lead never dipped below double-digits in the fourth as Souderton won its fourth straight over the Knights (5-8, 2-6).
