March 10, 2012

JOHNSTOWN - The Elk County Catholic Crusader basketball squad saw their season come to an end Friday evening as they were unable to fend off a late-game rally by the Shade Panthers and were handed a 48-44 loss in the opening round of the PIAA Class A playoffs in a game played at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.
"I think we came in with a good plan, but we did not adjust the plan as the game went on. As Wade Walker started hitting threes, we needed to adjust the plan a little bit. I thought we did a nice job of taking [Ryan] Fyock away, though," said ECC coach Aaron Straub.
