Beniwal shows versatility as Garnet Valley ends skid

Defenders beware: Stopping Neel Beniwal doesn’t just mean shadowing him to the 3-point line.

Beniwal, Delco’s leader in 3-pointers made, connected on just one longball Monday, but he scored 25 points to give Garnet Valley a 72-57 win over Ridley in a battle of two Central League teams aspiring for berths in the District 1 Class 6A field.

Beniwal scored 10 points in a third quarter when the Jaguars (13-7, 9-5 Central) opened up a cushion via a 25-9 edge. Beniwal was 8-for-10 from the line in addition to seven two-point baskets. Carl Schaller scored 14 points, and Greg Vlassopoulos added 12 points for GV, which snaps a four-game slide.

Enoch Clark led Ridley in the post with 19 points. Josh Howard buried five 3-pointers for 15 points for the Green Raiders (12-7, 7-7), who’ve followed seven straight wins with two consecutive losses.

In the Catholic League:

Archbishop Carroll 62, Archbishop Ryan 61 >> Taleeq Robbins hit a buzzer-beater for the Raiders, but the two-pointer left them still behind Carroll.

Ny’mire Little led Carroll with 23 points, including 5-for-7 from the line in the fourth quarter. Luke House added 17 points for the Patriots (11-9, 7-5).

In the Bicentennial League:

Delco Christian 75, Bristol 65 >> Jackson Piotrowski scored 23 points, Obinna Nwobodo added 20 and DC was 20-for-26 from the line.

Jacob Bronkema scored 10 of his 16 points in a fourth quarter in which the Knights (12-8, 7-6) tallied 31 points to hold off the Bristol charge.

Valley Forge M.A. 64, Christian Academy 58 >> Grant Sareyka scored a game-high 23 points, and Tehron Phillips added 15, but the Crusaders (9-8, 7-5) couldn’t mount a final surge in a back-and-forth affair.
