Crusaders Solid Effort Comes Up Short ... "I can't ask for anymore than what they are giving me"

Paced by John Crawley's 19 points, visiting St. Bernard's improved to 13-2 with an impressive 69-56 win over Groton-Dunstable (4-13) in a Saturday night, non-league game.

The Crusaders led 17-16 after the first quarter and won the second half by four points but despite 16 points and eight rebounds from sophomore guard Drew Moore, the Crusaders could not recover from their woeful second quarter where they were out- scored, 25-7.

The Mark Pierce coached, No. 7 ranked Bernardians are deep, talented, athletic and big including six foot six inch senior Brandon Weyant (5 pts.) and six foot seven Andrew Baron (4 pts.). Junior guards John Conry and Michael McGuiri added 10 points each.

They also can shoot, with six different players accounting for the nine three-pointers they drained. "They are one of the better teams in Central Mass," offered GD coach Keith Woods. "And they shot the three very well."

Trailing 41-24 at the half, Coach Pierce never let up, continually employing a full court press, even with the lead at 22 points!

Freshman point guard Corey Romich (15 pts. 7 assists), senior Phil Dubay (13 pts., 6 rebs.) and classmate Charlie Burke (6 pts., 9 rebs.), led the Crusaders offense.

"Drew Moore looks comfortable, having made the transition from football to round-ball and is getting better and better each game. Corey (Romich) is steady, solid for us and Phil (Dubay) and Charlie (Burke) were good off the boards. The kids are playing hard. I can't ask for anymore than what they are giving me," Woods said.
