The North Penn-Liberty boys basketball team continues their rampage through the 2019-2020 season as they win their sixth straight in another offensive frenzy against Addison on Saturday, Jan. 4 by a score of 69-56. The Liberty team moves themselves to 9-1 on the season with the win.
The Liberty team came out a bit slow, and only scored 12 points in the opening quarter and found themselves trailing 13-12 early.
The second quarter saw the offensive Liberty team we’ve seen all season find their rhythm, scoring 18 points behind a solid performance from Colton Litzelman who was able to net six in the quarter.
Defensively they saw a much improved effort, and only allowed seven points to give them a 30-20 halftime lead.
The second half was highlighted by a scoring barrage put on by Duncan Zeafla, who after scoring only five first half points, came alive in the second half to explode for 18 points including two three-pointers in the third to give his team some separation and the eventual victory.
Liberty continues to be an unstoppable force on the offensive end of the floor, and has a plethora of scorers that seem to take turns on which night they will lead the team.
Liberty had three players score in double figures, with Litzelman having one of his best performances of the season scoring 13 points as well as bringing down eight rebounds, recording four assists and snatching five steals on the game.
Brandon Thompson was able to score 12 points on the night and Zeafla paced his team with 23.
Noah Spencer turned in a solid all-around performance as well, he scored eight points, secured seven rebounds, dished out four assists, recorded two blocks and had five steals on the night.
Thompson continues to be the premier shot-blocker in the NTL, and sent back four blocks on the night to go along with his eight boards.
The North Penn-Liberty basketball team continues to impress on the offensive side of the ball, and over their last four games have averaged 74 points per contest.
They will need to continue to fire on all cylinders as their schedule begins to become more challenging with a big matchup with North Penn-Mansfield on Friday, Jan. 10 that should boast an electric atmosphere.
