BOYS BASKETBALL: Abington battles past Penn Wood, earns spot in state tourney

Defense, three-point shooting and rebounding. You couldn’t have asked for a better job in any of those departments from the Abington’s boys’ basketball team on Tuesday night. And most notably, you could’ve have asked for anything more from Matt Penecale.

The sophomore guard was all over the place in the first half, tallying 15 points – including four three-pointers – along with four rebounds and three blocks in the opening 16 minutes of play alone to help the Ghosts to more than double up Penn Wood on the scoreboard by halftime.

In the end, the fast start would be more than enough for the Ghosts to come out victorious, defeating the Patriots, 66-52, in a District One Class AAAA second round playoff in front of a raucous crowd at Abington High School.
