FAIRLESS HILLS – Conwell-Egan Catholic had three players in double digits in a Philadelphia Catholic League battle against Neumann-Goretti Thursday night on its home court and still, the Eagles could not keep up with the two-time defending PIAA Class AAA champions.

Leading from start to finish, the visiting Saints (5-4, 2-0) got 26 points, 11 assists and four steals from Kentucky signee Quade Green and got 16 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks from Villanova signee Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree on their way to a 76-45 triumph.

CEC junior Eric Esposito led Conwell-Egan (4-6, 0-2) with 13 points. Also coming through for the Eagles were juniors James Leible and Pat Robinson with 10 points, each. Senior Darien Simmons added nine points and Chauncey Wreh and Sean Stokes added a point, each.

N-G senior Marcus Littles and sophomore Christian Ings reached double digits for Neumann-Goretti with 13 and 11 points, respectively.

Next, Conwell-Egan will host Simon Gratz in a non-league match-up at 7 p.m. Saturday night before resuming Catholic League play against LaSalle on Monday, Jan. 9 at home.

Neumann Goretti, meanwhile, will travel to Wheeling, West Virginia where the Saints will do battle with Wheeler High School (Georgia) on Saturday morning, Jan. 7 and will resume league play at home vs. Cardinal O’Hara on Monday, Jan. 9.

Neumann toppled PCL rival Archbishop Carroll 83-71 earlier in the week on its home court. The Saints also crushed Suburban One National League rival Abington in the 12th annual Pete and Jameer Nelson Holiday Classic by 28 points Dec. 30 at Widener University.

Egan split a pair of games in the Prime Time ESCIT Tournament at Trenton Catholic, falling to Upper Room Christian (Dix Hills, N.Y.), 77-55 on Dec. 27 and outpacing Philly Public League rival John Bartram, 77-39 Dec. 28.
