Warwick’s great season ends

Warwick’s boys great basketball season comes to an end at the hands of the Central York Panthers in the first round of the District 3, Class 6A playoffs. Final score: Panthers 82, Warriors 51.

The Warriors won the L-L League Section Two title and they played Manheim Township in the L-L League title game. That was their first trip to the finals since 1990.

Central York broke open a 7-5 contest with a 9-0 run to take a comfortable lead they would never relinquish. Led by a game-high 20 points from Alex Salter as well as double-figure scoring by three others, the Central boys advanced to the quarterfinals with a convincing 82-51 triumph over the Warriors.

The seventh-seeded Panthers (18-6) will travel to No. 2 seed Chambersburg (19-5) Friday evening at 7 p.m., with the winner clinching a berth into the PIAA playoffs. Chambersburg had a first-round bye.
