The Saints of Berks Catholic welcomed the Mustangs of Governor Mifflin to Wolf Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon in the battle for Lancaster Avenue bragging rights. The Saints were without star guard Chris Warren, who suffered a knee injury on Thursday against Twin Valley. Coach Snip Esterly turned to sophomore Isaac Lutz to be Warren’s replacement.

The Saints were able to hold the visiting Mustangs to just 5 points in the second quarter, bolstering their lead to 38-15 at the half.
The Saints did not let up in the third quarter with Isaac Lutz taking control of the offense and Connor Jack catching fire from outside. After three the Saints held a 61-28 lead.
The fourth quarter saw several players get on the board for Berks Catholic. When it was all said and done, the Saints, who won 76-33, saw 12 different players score.
Nana Foulland has accomplished many things in his career at Berks Catholic. On Saturday, Foulland would add a “perfect game” to his illustrious high school resume. Foulland shot a perfect 9 for 9 from the field and 4 for 4 from the foul line on his way to a game-high 22 points for the Saints.
Stevan Rodriguez posted a team-high 12 points for the Mustangs.
