     Despite a 20-point first quarter by the Tallmadge Blue Devils, Boardman was able to take control of the game in the second quarter, going into halftime with an 8 point lead 34-26.
      Derrick Anderson scored 9 of his 28 in the 2nd quarter and Tommy Fryda and Zach Ryan both hit big 3-pointers.
      “The second quarter was really about out defense. We held Tallmadge to just six points in the quarter. We did a great job rotating and covering guys. Fryda had a couple steals, and Ryan and Trey DePietro did a really nice job on Tallmadge’s best player, holding him scoreless in the second quarter,” Boardman Head Coach Pat Birch said.
      The Spartans came out firing and displaying a pesky defense, extending the lead to 55-38, and solid free throw shooting allowed Boardman to finish off a resilient Tallmadge squad, 71-49.
      Anderson finished with a game high 28 points to go with 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals, while Fryda connected on five triples, on his way to 16 points. Fryda also snagged 7 steals and grabbed 3 rebounds. Ethan Andersen was the third Spartan in double figures with a dozen markers, to go with 8 rebounds and 2 blocks. Ryan connected on pair of shot from behind the arc for 6 points, along with a solid defensive effort. Trey DePietro added 4 points and played large inside, collecting 6 rebounds. Connor Miller and Daeone Martin chipped-in with 2 points each. Martin also grabbed 4 rebounds, and Joey Zahran rounded out the scoring with 1 point.
      The win was Boardman’s fifth in a row and improved their record to 15-1 on the season.
      Boardman used a fast start, jumping on Howland 21-0 to start the game, to earn an AAC victory, 64-31, last week.
      Anderson had a game high 20 points, to go with 5 assists. Fryda hit three 3-balls on his way to 11 points, and Martin added 8 points while playing strong defense, snagging 4 steals. Charlie Davis had 7 points and 3 rebounds. Andersen added 5 points and 5 rebounds. DePietro chipped in with 4 points and 4 rebounds. Jimmy Goske, Andrew Clark and Luke Ryan rounded out the scoring with 3 points each.
