Moser trey lifts Eagles to third-straight win

By on December 31, 2013

After an 0-4 start, Cocalico has started to get things together. And that continued Friday night at Twin Valley where the Eagles captured their third-straight victory with an exciting 39-38 non-league victory.

Trailing 38-36 with 15 seconds to play, senior guard Spencer Moser drilled a three-pointer to give Cocalico the win. It was Moser’s lone three of the contest, but his biggest shot.

Twin Valley (2-5) failed to convert on its next possession, but did get one final chance when the Eagles missed a pair of free throws in the closing seconds. Fortunately, TV’s last-second desperation shot missed, and the Eagles held on.

Moser led the way for the Eagles with 14 points. He was the lone player in double figures for either team. David Polisano paced the Raiders with eight points.

In addition to Friday’s game with Twin Valley, Cocalico also was in action last Wednesday at home vs. Muhlenberg in another non-league contest.

In that one, Spencer Moser scored 13 points and Austin Noll added 11 to help the Eagles defeat the Muhls, 53-50 in overtime.

Cocalico took a 39-33 lead into the fourth quarter only to see the Muhls catch up to force the extra session. However, the Eagles regrouped and out-scored them 7-4 in the overtime to grab the “W.”

Jalen Flynn had 15 points to lead the Muhls.

Cocalico was scheduled to be in action Monday night at Wilson in a non-league game. Results from that game will appear in next week’s Review.

The Eagles will return to Section Two play Friday, Jan. 3 when they host Conestoga Valley, beginning at 7:30 p.m. They’ll then hit the road for two straight games the following week, traveling to Lebanon on Monday, Jan. 6 before the big one at Ephrata Wednesday, Jan. 8.
