ROYERSFORD — The calendar might still say mid-to-late January, but Saturday night’s Athletes For Better Education Classic tourney matchup between Spring-Ford and visiting Wilson had an undeniable March feel to it.
The Rams headed into the contest ranked first in Southeastern Pennsylvania by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The Bulldogs meanwhile, sport the No. 1 rating in the District 3-AAAA power rankings.
The highly anticipated clash didn’t disappoint, with Spring-Ford eventually wearing down Wilson over the final two quarters to turn a two-point halftime advantage into a 52-43 victory.
Senior swing player Courtney Hinnant scored a season-high 17 points for the Rams (14-2), who also got 12 points from junior guard Sammy Stipa and 11 points and 11 rebounds from senior forward Sarah Payonk.
