Stephen Powell scored 19 points, Winslow Hicks added 13 and the host Stuart Hall boys’ basketball team ended the game on a 6-0 run to hand Lick-Wilmerding its first Bay Counties West League loss, a 49-45 decision on Tuesday.

Powell scored eight of his team’s 17 second-half points, including two foul shots that tied the score 45-45 with 2:11 left, and another free throw with 17 seconds left that put the Knights up 49-45. He also came up with a key steal and assist to Christian Nyembo that gave Stuart Hall a 48-45 lead with 41 seconds left.

Stuart Hall (19-5, 7-3 BCL West) led 41-33 midway through the third quarter, but the Tigers went on a 12-2 run, finally going ahead on Franco Panasci’s jumper with 2:23 remaining. In the second half, Lick-Wilmerding (18-6, 9-1) held the Knights to just three field goals and enjoyed a 23-13 rebounding advantage.

Powell, suffering from a stomach flu that left him eating just Saltines and Cheerios before the game, started on the bench and Stuart Hall fell behind 17-7. He made his impact immediately after entering midway through the first quarter, scoring 11 pointsto help the Knights race out to a 32-25 halftime lead.

“This was a big, big win for us,” said Powell, who also grabbed five rebounds. “They came into the game undefeated, so we knew this was a huge game for us. We came out and played hard and we were able to knock them off.”
