Close games at Showcase

Thursday, January 30, 2014 by TODD KRESS and CJ HEMERLY in Sports

With another great showing at Parkland High School on Sunday for the 19th annual Lehigh Valley Hoop Group Showcase, three of the four games were decided by five points or less.

The one that was not that close included one of the area's local teams. In the opening game of the showcase, Bethlehem Catholic ran into a talented Abington Heights team out of District 2.

The Golden Hawks were making their first Hoop Group appearance since 2003, and the big stage may have gotten to the young team as it started off slow.
