(Scranton, PA) – The Falcons won a close one against Essex CC Tuesday night, 82-78. Lackawanna's record is now 9-6 (6-2).
It was a close game throughout, it took MVP efforts by Talek Williams and Isaiah Wiggins to put away the Wolverines. The Falcons cruised to a 43-34 lead at half, shooting 42.9% from the floor and hitting 6 three pointers. The Wolverines would come back in the 2nd half to keep it close. Essex's Isaiah Jones matched Lackawanna's Isaiah Wiggins punch for punch. Both players scored 22 points.
The Wolverines only played with 6 players Tuesday night, and foul trouble helped seal the game for Lackawanna. Late in the game the Falcons were able to continue attacking physically knowing that if an Essex player fouled, the offender may be out of the game. The lead would go back and forth for much of the 2nd half but the Falcons pulled through to win 82-78.
