Quarterfinal action L-L League playoffs:
The defending L-L League champion Lancaster Catholic Crusaders led by one point after the third period 44-43. But the three-point game of Garden Spot fell mute in the 4th quarter and Catholic pulled away to win 55-45.
Prior to the fourth quarter Garden Spot had scored seven 3-pointers compared to Catholic’s two. But Catholic’s perimeter defense and domination on the boards in the 4th quarter was simply too much for the Spartans.
Garden Spots’ Jordan Shewbridge led all scoring with 20 points. The Spartans’ had their chances on the foul line but only made 6 of 12 free throws.
Lancaster Catholic will play Ephrata in the semifinals Wednesday evening at Penn Manor at 6 p.m.
Enjoy the highlights.
