Panthers Capture Edgemont Tournament

Posted Saturday, December 09, 2006 by Delle Bovi

After defeating Linclon Hall - 66 - 48 on Thursday to advance to the finals vs a strong Horace Mann Team, The P'Ville Panthers held on for an exciting 53 - 50 victory in the championship game.
The Panthers came out "on fire" and raced to a 12 - 0 lead highlighted by a fercious dunk by Dwayne Leach. But like all good teams Horace Mann climbed back into the game. For the last three quarters in was a game of "runs". At one point P'ville ran out to a 13 point lead. Once again Horace Mann fought back and late in the fourth quarter the game was all tied up. With under 2 minutes to play James Dondero went to the line to hit two clutch foul shots. The Panthers never relinguished the lead after that.
We won this game due to the tremendous defense the team played. Nobody made bigger plays down the end of the game than Patrick Croinin (our "QUIET" leader). Way to go Panthers!!!!
