Alco takes FH, City League title

CUMBERLAND —  Trenton Eirich scored 28 points, Mario D’Atri added 19 and top-ranked Allegany forged ahead in the third quarter and held off second-ranked Fort Hill down the stretch for a 76-63 victory and the City League championship Friday night at Fort Hill.

Coach Tedd Eirich’s Campers (11-1, 3-0 City) clinched the league crown with a game yet to play against Bishop Walsh. They also strengthened their grip on first place in the Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference, moving to 7-0.

Tyler Michael and Austin Christ had double-doubles in leading Fort Hill (8-4, 1-2, 4-3). Michael had 22 points, 11 rebounds and four assists, and Christ 12 points and 11 rebounds.

It was a stark contrast to the first meeting, a 106-47 Allegany rout at Campobello. Fort Hill led 14-13 after one quarter and 31-30 at halftime. Allegany scored the first nine points of the second half to take the lead for good, but it was just a two-possession game with 2:15 to go, Allegany up by 67-61.

Eirich had 19 points in the second half and 10 in the fourth quarter. Darick Kerns had four points, seven rebounds and six blocked shots in the second half.

A more detailed report on the game will be featured in Sunday’s edition.

Allegany won the freshman game 70-23 with Logan Milburn and Kristian Robinette scoring 12 points. Nathaniel Graves had eight for Fort Hill.

The Sentinels won the jayvee game 53-47. Brayden Brown had 23 points for Fort Hill and Sage Dye 22 for Allegany.

Fort Hill hosts Clear Spring today in a tripleheader. The freshmen play at 11, the jayvees at 12:30 and the varsity at 2. Allegany hosts Mountain Ridge in a makeup game Monday night.
