BOYS BASKETBALL: Jenkintown pulls away from Faith Christian

Montgomery Media / SCOTT ROMAN Jenkintown’s Ethan Goldstein protects the ball from Faith Christian's Will Diaz during Tuesday's District One Class A playoff action.
As the rain slowed outside Jenkintown High School, it started raining buckets inside the gymnasium Tuesday night as Jenkintown defeated Faith Christian, 49-31, in a District One Class A opening round playoff game.

Like the calm before the storm, both teams got off to a slow start with the two teams totaling 11 points after the first quarter. The second quarter started the offensive explosion with both teams netting 17 points apiece in the frame.

“This team shoots the basketball like none other,” Jenkintown coach Wes Emme said. “We have the capability of scoring a lot more points than we did in the past. We’re averaging 12 more points per game this year than we were last year. You don’t want to be a team that lives and dies by the three because when they’re not going, you’re in trouble.”
