WILLIAMSPORT - The streaking Williamsport Wildcats took command early and defeated the Walkersville Lions, 59-46, on Tuesday night in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League boys' basketball game.
It was the eleventh straight victory for the Wildcats (14-1, 11-1).
Williamsport scored the final seven points of the first quarter to take a 13-4 advantage. Senior center Andy Artz scored five of those seven points, including a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Wildcats a nine-point lead. Artz then scored five more points as the Wildcats stretched their lead to 20-6.
"Our goal is to just play as hard and as smart as we possibly can," Artz said. "I feel that all of the players on the team really did play as hard as we could tonight. Our team made a few mental mistakes. But on the most part, we pretty much played a smart basketball game."
