FOREST AREA 72, VENANGO CATHOLIC 59

OIL CITY, Pa. – Seth Berlin became the first boy in the Forest Area co-op to score 1,000 points in a career when he netted a game-high 24 points to go with 16 rebounds and three blocked shots in a 72-59 Fires win at Venango Catholic in KSAC North play.

Berlin came into the game needing 15 points for 1,000 and became just the third player to attend West Forest High School to reach 1,000 points joining Kirk Riddell (1,118 points in a career that ended in 1999) and Mike Vermillion (1,042 points in a career that ended in 1969). He is also the 15th player in the Forest Area School District to reach 1,000 points, as 11 players from East Forest reached 1,000 before the co-op between East and West started. The last player in the Forest Area School District to reach 1,000 before Friday night was Corey Snyder of East Forest in 2008 (1,105).

Dillon DiCorpo added 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists for Forest Area with Jarrett Kahle chipping in 12 points and five assists, Randy Moyer 12 points and 14 rebounds and Franklin Meals 11 points and five assists.

Josh Puleo led all scorers with 28 points for Venango Catholic, Ben Gillispie added nine points, Parker Slagle eight points and Andrew Burda eight tallies.

NORTH CLARION 66, CLARION-LIMESTONE 48

Banner talked about the win.

Keeven Weaver chipped in 10 points, 10 rebounds and three assists for North Clarion with Matson Higgins adding nine points and Jesse Schmader seven. Logan Minich added five steals, three assists and seven points while hitting a monster three early in the fourth quarter when C-L cut the North Clarion lead to 44-40.

Ian Callen paced C-L with 22 points, 10 rebounds and eight steals. Hayden Callen added 11 points and seven rebounds.

North Clarion has two KSAC North games left. The Wolves host Clarion Tuesday and then travel to Venango Catholic Friday. C-L has one KSAC North game left. The Lions host Venango Catholic Tuesday.
