Bulldogs claim KSAC-South title, advance to title game

Corrected to reflect correct tiebreaker between Redbank Valley and Karns City

KNOX — With the Keystone Shortway Athletic Conference’s South Division title on the line, the Redbank Valley Bulldogs stepped up and took care of business.

Jumping out to a 29-14 halftime lead, the Bulldogs beat Keystone 57-42 to clinch the division and earn another matchup with Clarion-Limestone in Friday night’s KSAC Championship game at Clarion University starting at 6 p.m. In their only meeting of the season, the Lions beat the Bulldogs in New Bethlehem, 72-56, back on Jan. 17.

It’s the first time the Bulldogs (16-6 overall, 8-2 KSAC-South) have reached the KSAC title game since the format was enacted in 2007. Clarion-Limestone is looking for its second title in three years. The Lions beat Union, 56-54, for the KSAC title in 2012. The Bulldogs haven’t won a KSAC title since winning their only two crowns in back-to-back years in 1991 and 1992.

Against the Panthers, the Bulldogs got 23 points from Jake Dougherty and 18 from Zach Westover. Adam Lencer scored 19 points to lead Keystone (11-11, 5-5).

A Redbank Valley loss would’ve given Karns City the KSAC-South title, but since both teams finished 8-2 and split their regular-season meetings, the Bulldogs better record against the KSAC-North was the tiebreaker.
