A nice consolation prize for being the WPIAL Class AA girls basketball tournament runner-up is a first-round PIAA game not far from home.
That's what faces Bishop Canevin following this past Friday's 51-35 loss to Section 3-AA rival Seton-LaSalle in the championship game at Pitt's Petersen Events Center.
The 16-10 Crusaders meet Cambridge Springs, the third-place team from District 10, at 6 p.m. Friday at Canon-McMillan High School.
Canevin saw a manageable deficit go out of control in the second quarter against the Rebels. They were outscored 13-2 and trailed at halftime, 28-10. Canevin cut the deficit twice to 13 points in the third quarter, but that's as close as the Crusaders got to the Rebels.
