With two straight losses behind them and with the District 1 Class AAAA playoffs looming, Conestoga's Pioneers needed to put a good game together. And that's just what they did Friday night.
Conestoga got 27 points from senior guard Chris Perillo and knocked off visiting Springfield (Delco), 69-62. The Pioneers are 12-5 in the league (14-9 overall) going into tonight's regular-season finale at Haverford High. The district playoffs open Friday.
"It sure was a big win," said Conestoga coach Pete Fredrickson. "It was especially big after losing to Strath Haven and Ridley back-to-back. There was a revenge factor too, since Springfield had beaten us last year at the end of the season to tie us for first place. This year, it was for second place. So it still meant something."
