Central York 58, Cedar Crest 54

After grinding out a victory over Carlisle on Tuesday night, Cedar Crest found themselves with a State berth, playing for 5th place in District 3 – 6A. Their opponent in the game would be top-seeded Central York, the victims of an upset handed to them in the quarterfinals by Red Lion. However, the Panthers rebounded with a 19-point win over Central Dauphin in their next game to set up the matchup with Crest.

In the 1st quarter at Central York High School, both offenses showed they came ready to play. By the end of the opening frame, Central York held a 20-15 lead, but Danny Speaks, with 4 points, quickly showed that he was going to be valuable off the bench for the Falcons. In the 2nd quarter, the scoring slowed but Speaks scored another 4 points as Crest kept within striking distance. At halftime, the scoreboard read 33-25 in favor of the Panthers.

Cedar Crest made halftime adjustments and came out in the 3rd quarter, charging back to cut Central York’s lead to just a single point by the end of the quarter. While outscoring their host 17-10 in the quarter, Fernando Marquez and Owen Chernich each hit three-pointers. Speaks continued his hot streak, contributing 6 points.

In the 4th quarter, Chernich again hit a three-pointer. Leo Tirado joined him in that endeavor, as the Falcons also went 4-4 from the free throw line in an attempt to complete the comeback. Unfortunately, Central York hit a series of key shots and free throws down the stretch to keep the Falcons at bay.

Off the bench, Speaks finished the game with 16 points. Chernich had 11 points, including three three-pointers.

Cedar Crest (21-8) claimed 6th place in District 3. This means that when the Falcons open States on Saturday, March 9th, they will be matched up on the road against the winner of the District 1 Championship between Lower Merion and Garnet Valley.

 Cedar Crest 50, Carlisle 49

Following Friday’s loss to Cumberland Valley, Cedar Crest moved to the consolation bracket, where they would need to win one of their next two games in order to qualify for the PIAA State Tournament. On Tuesday, the Falcons traveled to Carlisle to take on the #3-seeded Thundering Herd coming off of a loss to Reading.

Determined more than ever, Crest jumped out early to build a 4-point lead by the end of the 1st quarter. The early scoring was led by Aiden Schomp, who scored 5 points, including a three-pointer. While the opening quarter was good, the Falcons looked downright dominant in the 2nd quarter. Six players contributed to the 18 points that Crest would score in the quarter. RJ Young led the quarter’s scoring with 5 points, including a three-ball of his own, as Cedar Crest held a 29-15 lead at the half.

While Crest came out in the 3rd quarter continuing to score, Carlisle was not going to go away that easily. While Leo Tirado scored 6 points and Young scored 4 points, the Thundering Herd began hitting shots to cut into the Crest lead. Leading 38-33 entering the final quarter, Crest had to stave off a valiant effort that was made by Carlisle. A late three-pointer by the Herd cut the lead down to just a single point, but time expired before any more heart-attack-worthy moments could take place.

With 13 points, Tirado led the Cedar Crest scoring. Young finished with 11 points, while Schomp had 10 points.

With the victory, Cedar Crest (21-7) claimed their invite into the PIAA State Playoffs. The Falcons will next play on Thursday night when they take on top-seeded Central York in the 5th place game.
