It missed qualifying for the Pioneer Athletic Conference’s “Final Four” playoffs this year.
But that didn’t stop the Spring-Ford girls basketball team from flexing its muscle against a team that did … two days before the league’s tournament gets underway.
With Molly Hynes and Sydney Wagner each scoring 14 points, the Rams held off Boyertown Thursday, 44-39.
The loss didn’t change the alignment for the tourney, however, as Boyertown (11-2) had already secured the Liberty Division’s second seed. But it offered Spring-Ford (10-3) a measure of satisfaction as both teams closed out their PAC-10 regular season in advance of Saturday’s post-season kickoff.
Hynes and Wagner were part of a three-way tie for game scoring honors, Abby Kapp scoring 14 to lead Boyertown. But Spring-Ford kept the points edge from a 10-6 first quarter, leading 20-18 at the half and 34-27 going into the fourth.
Kapp was one of the game’s rebounding stars with eight, helping the Bears to a 34-27 lead off the glass. Wagner cleared a matching number of boards, all at the defensive end.
