GREENSBURG, Pa. – Cathedral Prep clinched a spot in the PIAA Class 5A Championship with a 54-46 win over Lower Dauphin Monday.
The Ramblers defense suffocated the Falcons all night and Prep was able to put the game away at the free throw line in the final minute.
This is Prep’s first trip to the championship game in 25 years (1996). The Ramblers will face Archbishop Ryan, an 85-63 winner over Chester in the other semifinal, on Friday in Hershey.
