The Elk County Catholic Crusaders pulled off a big 67-66 victory over the Johnsonburg Rams on Friday night in a contest played in front of a packed house at the ECCHS gymnasium.
Both teams battled hard from start to finish, and fans of both teams helped create an exciting atmosphere throughout the contest.
"The fan support was outstanding," said ECC head coach Aaron Straub. "They were as good as they get from start to finish. It was a fun atmosphere all the way around."
JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Lady Crusaders used a strong defensive attack in addition to transition points to pull away from the Ramettes Friday night in a 51-26 victory.
Johnsonburg senior Chelsea Benson paced all scorers with 11 points but ECC easily took the game with balanced scoring as five Lady Crusaders scored between six to nine points in the win.
DuBois Central Catholic basketball led throughout in a 58-18 win over Ridgway Friday night at Ridgway Area High School.
Redbank Valley wrestling won 55-9 over Ridgway in a dual meet held at Ridgway Area High School Thursday night.
Redbank Valley won eight of the 10 matches wrestled on the mat and picked up four wins via forfeit for the dual victory.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ Four wins by fall to go with five forfeits was more than enough Thursday night as Smethport won 57-14 in a dual meet over the Johnsonburg Rams.
Junior Cody Duchi and senior Matt Reeves won by fall at 120 and 182 pounds, respectively, and senior Justin Haupright earned a decision at 220 pounds for the Rams.
Ridgway gymnastics hosted Bellefonte as the team honored the only senior, Jenna Hoffman.
Senior Night was dubbed â€śJenna Nightâ€ť as Hoffman was honored with her family before the meet started.
Bellefonte tallied 121.05 team points, Ridgway had 109.525 team points in Wednesdayâ€™s meet.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ Despite cold temperatures outside, the Johnsonburg Rams (15-2) turned in a dominating performance Tuesday night in a blistering 75-30 victory over visiting Sheffield (4-12).
The Rams had a double-digit lead five minutes into the game and had a running clock near the midway point of the third quarter thanks to the 40-point mercy rule.
A late second quarter run would propel Curwensville to a 52-24 victory over Ridgway Tuesday night at Ridgway Area High School.
Monday's win would definitely qualify as a bounceback win for Ridgway.
After a loss to Johnsonburg last Friday, Ridgway boys basketball took control of the game in the second quarter and never looked back in a 51-19 victory over Coudersport Monday night at Ridgway Area High School.
A tie game might not seem like the typical time to pull out a behind-the-back pass but then again, Johnsonburg guard Cameron Grumley isn't just any typical basketball player.
Grumley's pass set up a go-ahead 3-pointer from Taylor Feronti which spurred the Rams on to a 54-37 win over Ridgway in front of a sellout crowd at Ridgway Area High School Friday night.
