HAGERSTOWN — The South Hagerstown boys basketball team got 46 points from their bench as the Rebels extended their winning streak to 13 games with a 74-43 win over Boonsboro in an MVAL Antietam game Tuesday night at South.

“Tonight, we got that spark from the bench,” South coach Kevin Naylor said. “Sometimes when you bring in the reserves, they give you that extra effort you’re looking for. The reserves realize they’re getting some playing time and they’re going to make the best of it.”

South’s top two scorers Tuesday were reserves. Brandon Hess pumped in 15 points, including a three 3-pointers, while Michael Wiley added 13 points for the Rebels (13-2, 9-0).

“We know what our coach asks of us,” Hess said. “We just try to do our part in helping out the team.”

Aaron Miranda led Boonsboro (3-12, 0-9) with 14 points and five rebounds.

“We ran our stuff for five minutes, then we just imploded,” Boonsboro coach Skip Chambers said. “Give the other team credit. They got us out of what we wanted to do.”

The Warriors led 8-7 after the first four minutes of the game. Naylor went to the bench and the Rebels responded with a 21-0 run to take a 28-8 advantage early in the second period.

South led 48-16 at halftime and 66-25 after three quarters.

“We have been playing the way that we have been playing all year long,” Naylor added. “We didn’t do anything different. We were fortunate to be able to play a lot of players.”
