BRODHEADSVILLE — Momentum.
It’s great to have, but hard to keep.
Down by eight points midway through the fourth quarter of Friday’s District 11 Class 4A quarterfinal game, Tamaqua was fortunate to find some against Saucon Valley.
The Blue Raiders rode a wave of energy to rally and force a tie against the Panthers.
But in the blink of an eye, that momentum disappeared.
A key putback by Cole Gilotti and six free throws from Josh Snead allowed Saucon to close on an 8-0 run and gain a 59-51 victory.
