It was only fitting that Old Forge’s run to a fifth District 2 Class 1A title was led by the player wearing No. 5.
Guard Tony Goodall scored 35 points in two games as the Blue Devils won another small-school district title and advanced to the PIAA playoffs for the 11th time in 14 years.
For his effort, Goodall has been named The Sunday Dispatch Athlete of the Week for the week Feb. 28-Mar. 6.
Tony scored 10 of his game-high 20 points in the first quarter of a D2 semifinal win over Forest City, then notched 10 of his 15 in the third quarter of the title game victory over Susquehanna. Goodall drained seven three-pointers in the two games and went a perfect 4-for-4 from the free throw line.
Posters of Tony can be found at Revello’s Pizza in Old Forge, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Old Forge Athlete of the Week.
