CLARION-LIMESTONE 96, VENANGO CATHOLIC 50

STRATTANVILLE, Pa. – R.J. Laugand and Kolton Stiglitz combined to score 58 points to lead Clarion-Limestone to its second straight KSAC North Division title with a 96-50 win over Venango Catholic Monday.

The Lions (19-3 overall, 9-1 KSAC North), who got a season-high 31 points from Laugand and a season-best 27 from Stiglitz, finished in a first-place tie with Cranberry but win the tiebreaker based on more wins vs. teams over or at .500 than the Berries.

On Monday, a shorthanded Venango Catholic squad playing without two starters – Scott Toy (illness) and Luke Plumer (ankle) – was no match for the running Lions, who scored a season high in points while going over 90 for the second time in three games and over 80 for the fourth time in five contests.

C-L led 61-35 at halftime after scoring 30 points in the first quarter and 31 in the second.

Noah Rankin added 10 points for the Lions, while Jacob Hargenrader led VC (13-7, 5-4) With 15 points and Devin Zagar added 12.

The Lions, who have won three of the last four KSAC North championships, will go for their second KSAC title in as many years when they rematch with Redbank Valley in the title game at 8 p.m. Friday at Clarion University’s Tippin Gym.
