Perry Hall Defeats Paint Branch in the 4A North Regional Championship

Perry Hall @ Paint Branch Boys BB 3-3-18

Paint Branch High School, Burtonsville, Maryland Saturday March 3, 2018

Paint Branch has had an outstanding 2017-2018 season, unfortunately it came to an end Saturday afternoon when Perry Hall, the defending Maryland 4A State Champions came to the Panther home court.  The Gators came with a considerable size advantage which initially did not seem have an impact on the play of the Panthers.  The game was close in the first quarter as a result of continually accurate three point shooting by Paint Branch.  That torrid pace continued throughout the second quarter and the half ended 46-41 Panthers, capped by a buzzer beating three point shot be #5 Richard Dudley who lead all scorers in the half with 25 points.

The second half began with two specific Perry Hall goals in mind, shutdown #5 Richard Dudley and pound the ball inside.  The score was close and back and forth but the Gators did prevent #5 Richard Dudley from scoring, limiting him to only 2 third quarter points.  The second goal of Perry Hall to pound the ball inside lead them to a 26 to 11 point third quarter tally which lead to a 67-57 lead going into the fourth quarter.  The momentum had completely swung in the Gators favor and the Panthers could not mount a comeback.  The final score was Perry Hall 88 Paint Branch 75.

Perry Hall again returns to the state semifinals and will face the Trojans of Gaithersburg on Thursday night this week.
