Albright Defeats Elizabethtown 81-78

ELIZABETHTOWN , Pa. --- A late Elizabethtown College rally fell short as the Blue Jays dropped an 81-78 Commonwealth Conference game at home to Albright College Saturday evening. Elizabethtown drops to 6-8 overall and 1-3 in the conference with the loss, while Albright improves to 6-8 overall and 1-3 in the conference with the victory.

Albright led 48-37 at the half and held a 61-44 lead with 13:44 to go in the game. From there, the Blue Jays began to chip away at Albright’s lead until, with 19 seconds left in the game, a Jordan Dirago (Wallkill, NY/Wallkill) layup cut the gap to 79-78. However, a pair of Albright free throws with eight seconds left increased the Lions’ lead to 81-78, and the Blue Jays were unable to score at the end of the game.

Chad Piersol (Elverson, PA/Owen J. Roberts) led Elizabethtown in scoring with 17 points, and he had five rebounds. Kris Kieres (Barnesville, PA/Mahanoy Area) added 16 points for Etown and knocked down four out of seven three-point attempts. Chris Fairbanks (Lititz, PA/Warwick) led Elizabethtown in rebounds with seven, and he scored nine points. Luke Ledyard (Frederick, MD/Gov. Thomas Johnson) added 10 points and four rebounds for the Blue Jays.

Greg Conroy (Collegeville, PA/Perkiomen Valley) came off the bench and led Albright in scoring with 27 points as he shot 8-for-11 from the field, 5-for-8 from three-point range and 6-for-6 from the free throw line. Albert Medoro (Exton, PA/West Chester Henderson) added 21 points and led the Lions in rebounds with 11. He shot 10-for-12 from the field.

Elizabethtown will return to action on the road Tuesday, January 16 at Commonwealth Conference rival Juniata College in an 8:00 p.m. contest.
