Mercury Girls Basketball Roundup: Lady Bears fall in Boyertown Holiday Tournament

It was in good shape Friday, leading the better part of its game with Delone Catholic in pursuit of a championship finish in its own tournament.

Then the fourth quarter started, and the Boyertown girls basketball team saw it all come undone.

A 21-point fourth quarter by the Squires reversed the Bears into a 47-37 loss. They had held 12-7 and 22-21 leads in the first half en route to a 28-26 advantage by the conclusion of the third quarter.

But Kylie Webb’s game-high 18 points — eight of which came down the stretch, on a pair of 3-pointers and two free throws — amounted to a majority of Boyertown’s late scoring. Delone (7-1), in the meantime, rode a combined 17 by Bradi Zumbrum and Brooke Lawyer to the championship comeback.

Victoria Boalton kicked in with 11 points for Boyertown (2-6) while Delone got a team-high 15 from Zumbrum and 14 from Lawyer.

In the tournament’s third-place game, Pope John Paul II prevailed over Coatesville in a barn-burner, 93-73. Monica Rapchinski scored 21 points to lead a quartet of double-figure Golden Panthers that included Lauren Ciuba (17), Julia Owens (14) and Elise Sylvester (13).

Upper Darby 38, Phoenixville 31 >> The Phantoms fell off the Royals’ second-half scoring pace in their non-league matchup.
