B-G 72, Afton 59

AFTON – In a season of firsts, Bainbridge-Guilford qualified for the Midstate Athletic Conference for the first time in several years outscoring Afton Tuesday evening.

Ryan Porter scored 24 points for B-G (11-5), who reached its highest point total of the season. Austin Bauerle had 18 points, 11 rebounds, and five steals, while Brooks Harmon and Corbin Palmer netted 10 points apiece.

“It was tough for us with Corbin (B-G point guard) out of the lineup at the beginning of the year, but this is satisfying for us,” said B-G coach Greg Warren. “Since we beat Oxford (on Dec. 30), we have come together and proved we can beat a team we haven’t beaten in a long time.”



Palmer and Harmon also dished out five assists apiece for the Bobcats, who have won nine out of 10 games.

Mitch Decker scored 24 points for Afton, and Cameron Oswald added 20.
