In a matchup that saw both teams struggle offensively, Radnor hustled out a close 44-40 victory over Springfield on Friday night. It was an unexpectedly low-scoring and physical game for both teams.

“Tough game,” said Radnor coach Chris Monahan. “We shot, I was looking at the stats, something like 37 percent. We got kids who can shoot, but you wouldn’t believe it from watching the game.

“Kids played really, really tough mentally,” added Monahan. “That’s a game last year we lose. Last year we would have hung our heads, but we hung through and we very good and very tough at the end of the game.”

The primary reason for this was junior forward Mason Ressler, who scored nine points and pulled down nine rebounds, five of which were offensive.
