The Germantown boys basketball team found itself behind Homestead at halftime of a North Shore Conference battle Friday, but a second-half revival gave the Warhawks a 71-55 win at home and a 7-0 record through the first wave in league competition.
Josh Mongan scored 16 points and led four players in double figures. His 3-pointer early in the third quarter gave the Warhawks a 33-32 lead and jump-started a 10-0 run from which Homestead never recovered.
The Highlanders' bench scored 22 of the team's 30 first-half points after the Warhawks took a lightning-quick 7-0 lead. James Reilly caught fire and hit a trio of 3-pointers in the first quarter, and Nick Mueller's long-distance delivery at the buzzer spotted the Highlanders a 30-28 lead at the break.
Dominic Wilder's 10 points led Homestead. Malcolm Bowers and Zak Showalter both scored 15 for Germantown, and Dan Studer added 10.
