High school roundup: Manager Stefko starts, scores as Dallastown boys win

Staff Report

Dallastown senior Jonah Stefko has been a manager for the Wildcat boys' basketball team for three years, but on Monday night against York Tech, he got the opportunity to take the floor with his teams' starters — and find the scoresheet.

The teams cleared the floor for Stefko to find the basket early in the contest before the teams settled into the game. Dallastown cruised to a 68-42 home victory over the visiting Spartans, allowing Stefko to reenter in the final minutes.

He made the most of his second chance, too, knocking down a 3-pointer as the home crowd went wild.

Kobe McNealy led the Wildcats (8-7) with a game-high 12 points on four 3-pointers. Teammate Will Scott knocked in 11 points, while Michael Scott and DJ Smith each scored 10. For the Spartans (4-12), Tyson Smith scored 11 points while teammates Anthony Torres and Ethan Shimmel scored 10 points apiece. 

Dallastown visits South Western in a York-Adams Division I contest Wednesday evening. York Tech will host Biglerville on Tuesday. But both sides shared an incredible memory Monday night.
