CLEAR SPRING - Clear Spring used 23 steals to notch a 57-54 victory over South Hagerstown on Wednesday night in a Washington County high school boys' basketball game.
Junior point guard Willie Jones led the assault with 10 steals. Shane Bussard added seven and Jeremy Stonebraker had five.
Clear Spring (7-9) helped itself by hitting 23 of 40 free throws.
"I'm proud of our players, because we are moving around real good on defense," Clear Spring coach Doug Allen said. "Our kids played real hard. This is a game that our players will remember for a while."
South Hagerstown (4-11) was in serious foul trouble all night, and three starters fouled out of the game.
"I give Clear Spring credit for playing a smart game," South Hagerstown coach Bob Starkey said. "They were aggressive and they hustled. They have made a remarkable improvement since the beginning of the season."
