It may be that it just experienced a slow start to its campaign. It might be that its schedule was front-loaded and more condusive to success in the latter part of the season.
But Peyton Wolfe and the Northern Lebanon boys’ basketball team never quit fighting.
This week, Wolfe’s Vikings continued to improve, and the result was three solid victories – and something to grow on.
On Friday at Donegal, the sophomore sharp-shooter poured in 28 points to lead Northern Lebanon to a tense 54-53 road victory. Wolfe knocked down an eye-popping seven three-point field goals and went three-for-four at the foul line.
Two days prior, Wolfe had helped Northern Lebanon to a 38-33 road triumph over Pine Grove.
On Monday in Fredericksburg, Wolfe posted 12 points in the Vikings’ 59-52 upset win over Octorara. Wolfe’s performance included 12 points, a couple of three-pointers and four-for-four foul shooting.
The 3-0 week left Northern Lebanon 5-10 overall.
For the season, Wolfe has averaged over 11 points per outing and has been the Vikings’ most prolific three-point shooter.
