Pennridge had a noticeable advantage in rebounds, which allowed them to get out and run on the fast break. The Rams also had success in their half court sets with shots coming from all over the court.

Pennridge had a balanced scoring attack through out the game with 10 players registering points and four players scoring at least eight points. Devan Rimmer lead all Rams with 14 points.

“We made free throws,” Tennett said. “Last time we played them we missed 25 free throws. Tonight we were probably 80 percent which always helps.”
