For three quarters, Tamaqua's Tyler Krell was relatively silent.
In the fourth quarter, Krell was a one-man sound explosion.
Thanks to Krell's late-game heroics, Tamaqua was able to hold off Jim Thorpe, 53-48, in a Schuylkill boys basketball game on Thursday.
"Tyler was the difference tonight," said Tamaqua coach Cas Kosciolek. "He got some critical rebounds and made some huge shots when we need them."
Krell exploded for nine points and seven rebounds in the final period, allowing him to finish the game with a double-double (15 points, 11 rebounds).
