Eirich scores 1,000th as Alco posts perfect AMAC, City marks

Williams rallies Moorefield past Falcons

CUMBERLAND — Trenton Eirich became the ninth boy in Campers’ history to score 1,000 points and top-rated Allegany finished off an unblemished record in the Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference and Cumberland City League by beating Bishop Walsh 65-46 Monday evening at Campobello.

Eirich entered the night needing 23 points to reach the exclusive club and got exactly what he needed, scoring his 23rd on his final free throw to become the first Camper to pass 1,000 since Casey Roberts in 2010. The senior guard and three-year starter hit eight field goals and was 5 of 9 at the line to hit 23, and added four assists and three steals.

“He couldn’t have done this without great teammates the past three years, and couldn’t have accomplished this without playing for winning teams,” said Allegany’s head coach Tedd Eirich. “The combination of those two things allowed this to happen.”

Colton Sivic added a double double for Alco (18-1) with 10 points 13 rebounds, and Darquel Jessie was a rebound short of his own double-double after scoring 14 points. Mario D’Atri put together 10 points and eight assists and Bryce Nightengale was big on defense with 10 boards and three blocks.

Max Paver had 12 points for the Spartans and Kier Turner scored 11.

Allegany raced to a 20-4 lead by the end of the first, grew it to 35-12 at halftime and was in front 49-28 after three.

The Campers finished 12-0 in the AMAC and 4-0 in the City to win each league outright after sharing both of them last season.

Carson Imes scored 16 points and Jason Copman had 15 in Allegany’s 52-14 junior varsity win. Zack Conroy had six for the Spartans.

Allegany plays a makeup game at Moorefield on Wednesday. Bishop Walsh (7-14, 4-5 AMAC, 0-3 City) hosts Southern tonight.

Moorefield led 30-23 at halftime but was outscored by Frankfort 22-9 in the third and trailed 45-39 going into the fourth.
