With one of its best players out due to illness, Garnet Valley leaned on the offensive exploits of Austin Laughlin in Saturday’s 69-55 triumph over Collegium Charter.
Laughlin picked up the slack and then some as Brandon Starr was unable to play. For the third time this season, Laughlin eclipsed the 30-point mark, scoring 33 points on eight field goals, including four from long distance. He was 10-for-12 at the charity stripe.
Connor O’Brien added 12 points and Danny Guy contributed 11 for the Jaguars (10-4).
Chester 67, Harrisburg 54 >> The Clippers (9-2) went on a 15-2 run in overtime, shooting 9-for-9 at the free-throw line.

Michael Smith (15 points) and Brian Randolph (10) also played well for the Clippers.
