Golden Tide Falter Against Crusaders in Key AML Game

ST. MARYS — A trio of Elk County Catholic cagers matched Curwensville’s offensive output to key a 67-38 win in an important Allegheny Mountain League cross-over game Tuesday night.

Brandon Schlimm paced the Crusaders with 14 points, while Ivan Wortman and Cory Huff added 13 and 11, respectively.

The Golden Tide, which fell to 2-2 in the AML South Division and 6-3 overall, got 14 points from Tanner Elensky and 12 from Brett Gardner.

“We just didn’t play real well,” Curwensville coach Shane Pentz said. “They actually had a 20-point lead in the second quarter, and we cut it to 11 and seemed to have some momentum going into the second half.

“But we had trouble putting the ball in the basket in the third quarter and they made nine of 12 shots.”

The Crusaders, 10-2 with a 5-1 AML North record, carried a 24-point advantage into the fourth period.

Elk County Catholic won the junior varsity game 47-37.

Curwensville swings back into the Moshannon Valley League on Thursday, traveling to Flinton to take on Glendale.
