The Baldwin boys basketball team collected its first section win at home Tuesday night.

The team defeated rival Bethel Park, 73-67, in impressive fashion.

Two Baldwin forwards dominated points in the paint: sophomore Dorien Ford and junior Troy Lanier.

“They did a great job finishing and it’s great to see them make buckets to help us win games,” senior guard Christian Barr said.

Barr shut down star Bethel Park guard Ryan Meis in a matchup between two experienced point guards.

Barr said he was happy to get the team’s first section win out of the way and to be able to push forward with the team’s goal of reaching a playoff spot.

“It’s great to get the first one under our belt,” Barr said. “Hopefully we can continue and get ourselves closer to the playoffs.”

The Highlanders with this win moved into fifth place in the section. The top four teams make the playoffs, so Baldwin will continue to battle Peters Township, Canon Mac, and Bethel Park for playoff position.   

Baldwin won this game without starting sophomore forward Connor Lavelle, who was out with an ankle injury, making the win even more impressive.

Baldwin basketball will be back in action on Friday night, hosting Penn Trafford in a non-section game.
