PC Puts Freeze on West Catholic Burrs

Were you hoping to receive an early Christmas present?

The boys basketball squads gave it to you Friday.

The 3rd team and junior varsity bested West Catholic by large margins, then the varsity tilt came down to the final seconds. PC earned a 56-54 win when frosh Ryan "Pooch" Holmes accepted a pass from junior Mason Williams and splashed a left-wing triple.

The victory gave the Quakers a 5-4 overall record.

Williams (19), Holmes (13) and senior Adam Holland (12) scored in double figures and the latter dished five assists. Senior Justus Sanders – shown here waiting for the ball to come down – provided a late highlight with two perfect shots from the foul line.

Strong defense by seniors James Gabor and Dylan Burnett caused WC's last possession to produce zilch.
