MIFFLINBURG – Central Mountain had a key road trip Saturday night to face the ‘other’ Wildcats in a PHAC contest, coming up short to Mifflinburg, 56-50.
Mifflinburg held a narrow 17-14 lead after one quarter but stepped up their offense and pulled ahead of Central Mountain in the second period 21-10 to hold a 38-24 halftime lead.
