NEW CASTLE, PA- East Palestine went across the state border searching for their first victory, but unfortunately, they’re going to have to take a rain check.  The Bulldogs competed in the Mohawk Tip-Off Tournament where they were defeated 86-32 last night, and came up short this afternoon to Elwood City 76-40.

Sophomore standout Jonathan Bertovich plowed the way for EP with 19 points.  Brandon Turcola supplemented with 11 while Tyler Bistarkey had 3 and Evan Smith had 5.

For the Wolverines, Alex Roth had 13 points, Nate Coomfare had 12, and Ryan Gibbons had 9.  Elwood City did a superb job of spreading the wealth at the hoop as 10 players registered at least 3 tallies for the Wolverines.

East Palestine will have nearly a week to gather a game plan for EOAC foe, Leetonia.  That game will be played on Friday at Leetonia High School, with tip set for 7pm.
