Golden Pan­thers shoot down Cru­saders

The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - SPORTS - By KEV HUNTER

LANS­DALE — Shortly be­fore half­time, Pope John Paul II be­gan a 19-0 run that stretched all the way into the third quar­ter, and the Golden Pan­thers would not trail again in earn­ing a 70-65 vic­tory over Lans­dale Catholic in a non-league con­test Thurs­day night at LC.

The Cru­saders could not du­pli­cate their hot start, as they built a 25-15 lead in the sec­ond quar­ter. LC wasn’t able to take ad­van­tage of a big night from the out­side by Kyle Pav­lik, who hit five threes in a 15-point per­for­mance.

Pope John Paul II had some out­side shoot­ing of its own, as the Golden Pan­thers (10-6) hit a dozen threes, in­clud­ing four by James Bem­ing. Bem­ing led the visi­tors with 19 points as he helped them go up by dou­ble dig­its mid­way through the fourth.

LC got within six a cou­ple times late, but a pair of free throws by Nikky Cian­ci­ulli stretched the mar­gin to 66-59 with 35 sec­onds to go, putting it away for Pope John Paul II.
