DALLASTOWN — Survive and advance.
It was what William Penn was trying to do Saturday night.
The upset-minded Warriors of Methacton very nearly send the Bearcats home disappointed.
The District 3 runner-up Bearcats saw an 18-point, third-quarter lead dwindle to as little as a basket Saturday evening at Dallastown High School, before escaping with a 67-63 win over Methacton.
“Methacton played like their season was on the line,” Sowers said. “They were nailing threes with our arms up. I don’t know what else we could do.
“When we are missing foul shots and they are making threes, things can change pretty quick. We shot horrific from the line in that quarter. Everybody is good in the Quad-A state tournament. We wanted the W and I’ll take it.”
