La Salle Cardinals varsity basketball, playing in the CHSAA B division semi-finals at
Cardinal Spellman, sprinted out to an early lead in their victory over Moore Catholic on Sunday afternoon.
Playing in the semi-finals for the 3rd consecutive year, the Cardinals used a stingy defense en route to a 40-20 halftime lead. In the second half, the Cardinals continued the trend of “defense first” on the way to the 68-46 victory. Korey Williams led the way with a career-high 23 points while Isaiah Allen-Smith added 15 points and James Bouknight chipped in 12 points.
With the win, La Salle has clinched a spot in the CHSAA B Championship Game on Friday, March 3rd at 6pm to be held at Fordham University Rose Hill Campus in the Bronx.
Tickets for Friday’s game can be purchased in advance through La Salle’s Athletic Department (Athletics@LaSalleAcademy.org) beginning Wednesday or at the door on Friday evening ($10).
