DUBOIS – An 11-0 Clarion run keyed the Lady Bobcats to a, 44-40, win over the Lady Elkers in the District 9 Class AA consolation game at DuBois High School Friday night. The Ridgway girls nearly pulled out a miracle after pulling within a three-pointer to tie with 18.4 left in the contest. Unfortunately a turnover and foul shot by Noel Anthony with 12.8 left clinched the win for Clarion which has won nine straight games. “We had a chance to put this thing away but Clarion adjusted and made some shots and we went cold. The bottom line though is that the girls never gave up and again I can’t ask any more of them,” said Elkers Head coach John Bennardi.
