Robinson, Clark lead Pottsgrove to Twin Valley title; Allen, Norristown take down Reading

 
Pottsgrove 49, Twin Valley 46 – Justin Robinson buried a long three-pointer at the final buzzer to help the Falcons (7-3) top the host Raiders in the championship game of the Twin Valley Holiday Tournament Friday.
Manny Clark, who scored a game-high 20 points (8-20 FG) and keyed a ferocious defensive effort with 6 steals, had set the stage for Robinson’s heroics by hitting a clutch triple with 19 seconds left to forge a 46-46 tie.
On the ensuing possession following Clark’s trey, Twin Valley turned the ball over before Robinson worked his late magic.
The Grove, which also got 13 points and 7 rebounds from Khaliym Smith, won the game at the defensive end, forcing 23 turnovers to compensate for lackluster shooting (19-64 FG, 30 percent).
