Lenape Ends Memorable Season

Lenape's boys' basketball team hung in there for a half with the state's best team, but eventually the depth of St. Patrick's wore the Indians down.

Leading 32-20 at halftime, St. Patrick put things away with a 26-9 third quarter in tonight's 66-40 win over the Indians in a Tournament of Champions semifinal at Sovereign Bank Arena.

Kendall Peters led Lenape with nine points, all scored in the second quarter.

Lenape, a team that usually takes care of the ball, committed 27 turnovers against the pressure applied by the Celtics.

The Indians finish 25-9 and have already earned the No. 1 ranking in the final Inquirer South Jersey Top 10.

It was quite a run for Lenape, but tonight it ended against a superior opponent.

St. Pat's (29-3) now plays Science in Monday's 8 p.m. TOC championship game at the Izod Center.
