Later in the quarter, the Lions led 16-12 before a breakaway dunk from junior forward Ian Johnson extended Bishop Ryan’s lead to six at 18-12.

The Lions took command in the second by not allowing a Glenburn basket for the first 3:35 of the quarter. By the time the Panthers finally got in the scoring column, Bishop Ryan had amassed a 27-14 lead.

Bishop Ryan’s offense received a big boost with under two minutes to go before the break. After the Lions split a pair of free throws, Johnson drilled a three-pointer from the wing to give Bishop Ryan a 33-15 advantage.

By the end of two quarters, the Lions were firmly ahead 37-15. After the third quarter, the Bishop Ryan lead ballooned to 56-20 as the Lions cruised to a 67-30 victory. Johnson led all players with 15 points while Josh Will and Brady Feller also reached double figure scoring totals with 13 and 11 respectively.
