The Clippers weren’t going to allow a similar scenario play out Saturday afternoon at Coatesville High School.
West Chester Rustin, a team that Chester already handled in the District One semifinal round a few weeks earlier, could have been another one of those pesky, guard-oriented teams that don’t go away, but the Clippers had an answer for everything the Golden Knights threw their way.
Chester rolled to a 66-36 decision over Rustin and advanced to PIAA Class AAAA semifinals. The Clippers face La Salle College Tuesday night for the right to play for the PIAA Class AAAA championship next Saturday at Hershey’s GIANT Center. The Clippers are in the semifinals for the fourth consecutive season.
Not to say that they ever take any opponent lightly, but the Clippers sure played like a team on a mission against the Golden Knights. There was no more messing around.
