Princess Clemons provided Bonner & Prendergast with a memorable send-off in Tuesday night’s Catholic League home game against Lansdale Catholic.

Clemons’ short-range basket with one second to go on the overtime clock lifted the Pandas to a 54-52 victory.

Moments earlier, Maggie McPeak gave the Pandas (13-5) a brief lead before LC tied things up with 11 seconds to play. That set the stage for Clemons, who finished with 10 points.

Maeve McCann scored all of her 14 points after halftime and Caroline Manfre chipped in 12 points, five steals and five rebounds.
