SHERIDAN – A first quarter surge by Luke Holland and 20 points from Jonah Parke helped the Drummond Trojans beat the Sheridan Panthers Friday night on the road.
“Kids played good tonight,” said Trojan Head Coach Levi Parsons. “(They) started off kinda of slow in the first half, mostly just unable to score. But they really turned it around in the second half and ran away with the game.”
Sheridan led 13-12 after one period, with Holland scoring eight of his 14 points. But then the Drummond defense turned up the heat defensively, holding the Panthers to six points or less over each of the next three periods while ramping up their own scoring.
Parke’s 20 was a game high for the Trojans followed by Holland. Allen added nine in the post.
Drummond’s two teams head back home Saturday night as they host Darby.

The Lady Trojans overpowered the Panthers, using a tough defense and 26-point third period to secure their first win of the new year.
“We really focused on staying calm and running our plays,” said junior guard Rylee Hilmo. “We worked together well and ran the court in order to take the lead."
Once the locals held a 25-8 halftime advantage, they outscored Sheridan by 19 points in the third to ice the game.
"This was a great game for us to practice and improve in our game,” added Hannah Bradshaw. “I feel like overall we did really well with working together as one team and running through our plays."
Hilmo led Drummond with 16 points, followed closely by Sydney Phillips with 15. Senior Sara Kielley had nine.
