Chris Johnson had five points heading into the fourth quarter of Cardinal O’Hara’s Catholic League showdown with Lansdale Catholic Sunday.
The 5-10 sophomore three-man would not stay on that number long.
Johnson scored six points in the final period to propel the Lions to a 41-37 victory over the Crusaders.
It was O’Hara’s first win since a 42-36 decision over Southern Dec. 29, and snapped a seven-game losing streak. It also gave the Lions their first Catholic League win of the season.
Johnson hit two baskets and went 2-for-3 from the line to finish with 11 points and help the Lions (5-11, 1-6) outscore the Crusaders, 8-4, in the fourth quarter. Zakee Griffin of O’Hara led all scorers with 15 points.
