Pennsbury Goes On 38-16 Run To Win 67-43
Midway through the second quarter Pennsbury held a 29-27 advantage. From there, the Falcons outscored Harry S. Truman 38-16 the rest of the way to take the game 67-43. "It’s about believing in ourselves," said Pennsbury head coach Bill Coleman. "Our game is (defensive) pressure. In the wins that we’ve gotten, it’s from the pressure that we’ve created. We knew if we pressured their guards and protected the paint we’d be fine." "In the second half, we played awesome defense," Pennsbury senior Zachary Sibel said. "We limited them to seven points per quarter, 14 points in the second half, that’s amazing." Pennsbury forced 18 turnovers and gave it away just 12 times. The Falcons forced eight steals, five by Shawn Pepper. Offensively, the …

Lady Falcons Struggle Against No. 3 Team In State
In order to beat a "powerhouse" like Council Rock North patience must be exemplified for 32 minutes, not just the first few. Pennsbury couldn’t have asked for a better possession to start the game against the No. 3 ranked team in Pennsylvania and undefeated Lady Indians. They patiently swung the ball around the perimeter looking to get the ball inside for an easy look. Forty-five seconds into the possession, forward Molly Phillips got a nice feed into the post and converted an "old-fashioned" three-point play. Unfortunately for the Lady Falcons, that was one of just a few positive things they did all day as Council Rock North pulled away for a 63-23 win Tuesday. "Our inexperience showed," Pennsbury head coach Donna Nicholson said. "You …

The brother-sister tandem of Kieran and Lindsay Bolger live up to the family name. Both siblings play for Pennsbury Varsity Team.
Decisions get extremely tough at the Bolger household. They have a son and daughter who each play for the Pennsbury Varsity basketball team. Junior guard Kieran Bolger is the leading scorer for the boy’s team. His little sister Lindsay is a sophomore on the girl’s team. The major dilemma for Jim and Eileen Bolger is which games they choose to attend. Most of the boy’s and girl’s games are played at the same time. "We try to spread the love," said Jim Bolger. "We’re running in many different directions. It doesn’t always work out, but we see who’s playing and which one’s the bigger game." Kieran and Lindsay’s father is Jim Bolger, a former Rider basketball standout and member of the 1984 Broncs NCAA Tournament team. It was first of just …

Indians Length And Size Too Much For Falcons
Council Rock North’s length and size proved to be too much for Pennsbury as the Indians cruised to an 83-56 win Friday night. “We’re starting people that are 6’2" or below, and pretty much everyone on our team is 6’2" or below,” Pennsbury head coach Bill Coleman said. The defending Suburban One League Champions out-rebounded the Falcons by a substantial 41-12 margin. “Every single one of us had to box out,” said Coleman. “That was the gameplan. Everyone as a team, if we boxed out we could’ve had a shot. If you take a look at how it ended up, (Arron) Goodman had 19, (Charlie) Anastasi had 18 and most of those were second chance points.” Indian forward John Raymon led all rebounders with 11. Anastasi snatched down nine while Goodman pulled …
