YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Two Youngstown rivals were in the spotlight Friday night, battling it out on the basketball court. This was a game for pride throughout the city.
It was a packed house at East High School as the Golden Bears hosted rival Chaney in Steel Valley Conference action.
Chaney won the first meeting last month, coming away with a 16-point victory.
Going into Friday night, the Cowboys hadn’t lost since December 17, having won seven of the last eight games overall.
Chaney was 9-3 before Friday’s meeting. Two of their three losses this season were by a combined 4 points. Keep in mind, this Chaney team just missed out on winning a district title last spring.
East checked in at 3-9 but the Golden Bears continue to improve. Their coaches said the future is bright, with plenty of young talent in the program. They’d love nothing more than to give Chaney its first league loss.
