BOYS BASKETBALL



JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - Southern Fulton outscored Northern Bedford 18-13 in the fourth quarter, as the Indians captured the District 5 Class A title with a 63-62 victory at University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown on Wednesday night.

It's Southern Fulton's second district boys basketball title in school history and first since 1986.

And the Indians got it done with only two seniors in the lineup.

"We're young," said Indians coach Kent Hendershot. "I knew we were going to be good, but how good, I didn't know.

"They just kept working hard all season and kept improving and getting better, and they got rewarded for all their hard work."

Will Schriver led Southern Fulton with 13 points and nine rebounds, while Danny True had 12 points, Tim Keebaugh had 10 points and seven rebounds, and Will Whiteside had nine points, seven assists, five rebounds and four steals.
