It was also a triumphant return for Luke Cramer.

The Gremlin senior missed all of last season with a knee injury suffered on the football field.

He added 19 points and five rebounds for Karns City, which jumped out to a 39-26 lead at the half and held off Sharpsville in the fourth quarter.


Maddox Bennett scored 21 points to lead three players in double-digits for the Beavers in a win at the Keystone Tournament.

Cam Thompson added 14 points and Rudy Williams 12 for DuBois.

Devon Lauer scored 16 tp lead Clarion.

Bryce Brinkley chipped in 14 points for the Bobcats.


Isaiah Jackson poured in 25 points to lead the Rams.

Andrew Zepeda paced the Warriors with 10 points.


Kaida Yoder stepped to the line following a timeout and calmly sank the second of her two shots to put Brookville ahead 48-44 with four seconds remaining. The shot turned out to be huge as Jenna Dunn sank a t3-pointer at the buzzer for C-L, cutting the final score to 48-47 in an opening round game at the Brookville Tip-Off Tournament.
“Kaida had a rough night at the free throw line, especially in the fourth quarter,” said Brookville head coach Mark Powell. “She made the biggest one of the night though. After the timeout we took everyone away from the line because I didn’t want to foul them on a miss. It’s a good thing that one went in to make it the clincher because C-L made that three at the end.”
After trailing by five 26-21 at halftime, Brookville outscored C-L 15-7 in the third quarter to take a 36-33 lead after three quarters.
“Really proud of how our kids came out in the second half,” said Powell. “We turned a five-point deficit into a three-point lead and I really think that was the difference in the ballgame.”
Brookville jumped to a 6-1 lead before C-L closed the quarter with an 8-1 run to take a 9-7 lead after one quarter.
After the Raiders tied the score 11-all in the second, the Lions would use a 6-0 run started on a three-pointer by Samantha Simpson to take a 17-11 lead. Brookville would close the gap to five at 26-21 by halftime.
Brookville would take the lead for good at 31-30 midway through the third quarter. The Raiders would build their lead to seven at 47-40 with just over two minutes remaining. However, Raegan Love and Kalyssa Ferguson would hit back-to-back short jumpers to cut the lead to 47-44 with 1:13 left. 
After a timeout with 20 seconds remaining, the Raiders would chew up 16 seconds before Yoder was fouled with four seconds left setting up her free throw.
Eden Wonderling scored 14 points to lead Brookville while Yoder added nine. Kerstyn Davie, Samantha Whitling, and Lily Plyler each added six.
Jenna Dunn scored 15 points for C-L while Raegan Love added 10 points, and Ferguson chipped in with seven points.
“There were a lot of good things to take away from this game,” said Powell. “Both C-L and Brookville are very young. Brookville does have a few seniors while C-L has none, so I feel that was somewhat of a factor in the game. Both teams played really hard and I feel this could be a fun matchup for years to come.”
In the opening game of the Brookville Tournament, the Bison rode a big first half to help knock off North Clarion.
Clearfield led 30-17 at halftime on the strength of a 15-8 first quarter advantage and a 15-9 second quarter edge.
Freshman Sonny Diehl paced three players in double figures with 16 points for Clearfield. Mia Helsel added 12 points while Hannah Glunt added 10 points.
Lily Homan scored 13 points to lead North Clarion. Akeela Greenawalt added nine points on a trio of three-pointers. Brooke Steinman chipped in with eight points.


The first game of the Union/A-C Valley girls co-op got off to a good start.

Maddy Dehart scored 20 points, including 10-of-14 from the free throw line, ad Kya Wetzel added 14 as Union/A-C Valley, joining forces for the first time this season, downed Youngsville in overtime.

Dehart scored six of her points in the extra frame to help Union/A-C Valley notch the victory.
