The Mansfield St.Peter's boys basketball team is having it's best season in nine years standing at 7-5 at the midway point of the season after downing South Central 74-44.  The Spartans put four players in double digit scoring on Saturday with Adam Blunk and Joe Rall leading the way with 13, while Will Rhodes and Hayden Eighinger scored 10 each.  Coach Pat Durham feels if his team becomes more consistent they have the ability to play with anybody.

Of their five losses, three games were decided by a combined total of six points, which included an overtime loss to Sandusky St.Mary's Central Catholic and a one point loss to rival Mansfield Christian.  On Saturday the Spartans will play host to Shelby who enters the weekend at 8-3.  Durham says the Whippets have combined good defense with good shooting and have been more than able to hold their own on the glass.  The Spartans have already won more games at this point in the season than what they did all of last year when the team finished at 6-14.
