Spring-Ford 67, West Chester Rustin 22 (Box Score) >> The Rams continued their run toward the post-season Wednesday by rolling over the Golden Knights in non-league action to lock up the No. 1 seed in District 1 Class 6A.
While Lucy Olsen put up a game-high 17 points, the SF defense limited Rustin to 13 first-half points as it scored 40. Abbey Boyer and Emily Tiffan chipped in with nine apiece in a Ram lineup that got points from 10 players.
Boyertown 47, Downingtown West 44 (Box Score) >> The Bears made a big early lead hold up Wednesday as they outlasted the Whippets in a non-league matchup.
With Ashley Kapp (22 points) narrowly claiming game scoring honors, Boyertown saw a 27-15 halftime advantage shaved to one (35-34) going into the fourth. Fiona Hovey added 10 to the Bears’ offense, and Maddie Konnick eight.
Plymouth Whitemarsh 37, Pope John Paul 32 (Box Score) >> The Golden Panthers saw a close non-league game with the District 1 No. 2 ranked Colonials slip away in the second half Wednesday.
Outscored in a 10-4 third quarter, PJP went from being one (17-16) down at the half to seven (27-20) heading into the fourth. While they had no double-figure scoring — Kayla Ciuba was high with nine, followed by eight from Amelia Kennedy — the Panthers got statistical support from Kallan Bustynowicz (three blocks, 10 rebounds), Kennedy (five steals), Tess Crossan (eight assists) and Ciuba (seven rebounds).
Central Bucks West 48, Owen J. Roberts 35 (Box Score) >> Owen J. Roberts last-ditch effort to qualify for the District 1-6A playoffs fell short in a non-league loss Wednesday afternoon.

OJR was led by junior Avery White’s 21 points. White capped her season as the Pioneer Athletic Conference’s leading scorer by averaging 19.0 points per game.
