Freshman Basketball Advances to CHSAA Semifinals

Monday, February 17, 2020 – The La Salle freshmen basketball team began their playoffs against Fordham Prep in the CHSAA quarterfinals. The game was tight throughout as both teams showed flashes but neither team was able to pull away. The Cardinals began the 4th quarter with a seven-point lead that quickly evaporated as Fordham Prep came out of the quarter hot which led to a two-point La Salle deficit. With two minutes to go, the young Cardinals buckled down with some tight defense to regain the lead and finish the game with a 45-43 win. La Salle was led by Xavier Sanabria with 19 points and Taylor Perlmutter with 16 points. The Cardinals return to action on Wednesday in a semifinals matchup against St. Edmunds.
