Penncrest pulled off a Central League upset over Conestoga on Wednesday night, one that could help shape the conference’s playoff picture.

The Lions, who’ve had had a fourth quarter lead in all 19 of the games they’ve played this season, were able to finish off a big one, holding on for a 57-53 win.

Penncrest, which was led by sophomore Tyler Norwood’s 19 points and got 12 more from junior guard Justin Ross, improved to 7-6 in the league, while Conestoga dropped to 9-4. While the win certainly might have an impact on the Central League playoffs next weekend, it definitely helps the Lions’ push towards a spot in the District 1 AAAA playoffs.
