Thrilling Finishes in District Hoops

We expected to see a pair of quality games in the boys “AAAA” semifinal matchups in Hershey and they did not disappoint.    In the first semifinal, York holds off a second half rally by J.P. McCaskey to win 81-76.   In the nightcap at Giant Center, Harrisburg uses a buzzer-beating putback from Shaquan Sheppard to eliminate Wilson 58-56.    York and Harrisburg will now meet on Saturday afternoon at 1pm for the championship.  Here are the results from District 3 play on Tuesday Night:
