Palisades wins thriller on Senior Night

KINTNERSVILLE- It was a senior night to remember for the Palisades boys basketball team as they closed out the regular season with a last-second victory over their arch-rival Saucon Valley 50-49. In a game that was back and forth throughout, the Panthers had the lead 49-47 but with just 20 seconds remaining, the Pirates sent their fans home happy.

Senior Noah Marshall the hero on this night as he drained a huge 3-pointer leading Palisades to the one-point win. The victory improved the Pirates final record to 6-16 while Saucon Valley fell to 3-17 on the year. Palisades ends the 2018-19 campaign in record fashion as they produced 138 3-pointers, breaking the old mark of 127 back in 2002.

A packed house was on their feet throughout the game and enjoyed a doubleheader sweep with the Palisades girls also winning in the final seconds 33-31.

Marshall led all scorers with 14 points with fellow senior Grayson Deiley chipping in a dozen. Saucon Valley would place three players in double figures with Sean Cyphers leading the charge with 11 points while Conor O’Donnell and Brad Yeahl both finished with 10 points apiece.

The game also saw junior Bobby Snyder hit a three-pointer(92) passing Anthony Mayette(Class of 2011) for second on the all-time list. He will be going into his senior year needing 6 3-pointers to become the school’s all-time leader in that category(Dustin Lindley 97 in 2003). Senior Grayson Deiley added two 3-pointers and ends his career tied with Austin Krauss (74 in 2016) for 7th all time.

The seniors departing include Grayson and Kane Deiley, Noah Marshall, Owen Barcley, Wyatt Bartol, Dan Muth, and Brandon Akers.
