The Dutch used a strong second half to defeat the Bobcats. Clarion held a slim 26-24 lead at the half, only to see St. Marys outscore them 33-22 in the second 16 minutes of play.
“I thought we had a sluggish start which was the effect of a long road trip (to Coudersport) last night,” said St. Marys coach Mark Guido.
