The Bishop Canevin bats are coming alive and the timing could not be better because the Crusaders are headed back to the playoffs. Their playoff hopes were up in the air after a three-game losing streak in mid-April. Bishop Canevin lost to Sewickley Academy and Serra Catholic twice in the span of four days to put themselves in a precarious position. But then the runs came and they came in a big way. The Crusaders blasted the Ellis School, 16-0, and went on the road to wallop playoff-bound Sewickley Academy, 21-11. Bishop Canevin made its date with the playoffs official with a 13-7 win at Northgate.
With one section game remaining, Bishop Canevin (6-4, 6-3) is comfortably in third place behind Serra Catholic (13-0, 9-0) and Sewickley Academy (10-5, 7-3). Bishop Canevin closes out the regular season with one more section match Monday at home against Cornell and then visits Class AAAA Peters Township on Wednesday.
