District 1 Roundup: Pioneer, Central races too close to call

By CoBL Staff

The CoBL staff was out at several games around the Delaware Valley on Tuesday evening, but we couldn’t be everywhere. Here’s a roundup of the night’s action featuring several games and conference races worth knowing about as the season hits its final two weeks:

The top two teams in the Central League seem all but locked in; both Lower Merion and Penncrest sit at 11-2 with three games to play, and neither are facing as tough a slate as the three teams below them.

Upper Darby, Garnet Valley and Conestoga are all now 9-4 in league play after Tuesday night, which saw UD take out Haverford 48-34, Lower Merion beat GV 75-68 and Conestoga beat Ridley 44-30.

That’s going to set up quite an interesting final three weeks, as those three teams all play each other for the second time. Conestoga, which beat Lower Merion once this year, gets the Aces again on the road on Friday, and also hosts Upper Darby and Garnet Valley next week. Upper Darby hosts Garnet Valley on Friday, and also plays Ridley (3-10) in its season finale; Garnet Valley hosts Haverford (4-9) in between its trips to UD and ‘Stoga.
