  • Bruins win two over Cycs

    The Lancaster Bruins finished fast to cap a hoops sweep of the Class AAA Chester Cyclones on Tuesday night in the LHS gym.

    The Bruins, with a key fourth-period surge, took the lead and held on for the 77-71 win over the Cyclones.

    The LHS boys’ six-point win gave the Bruins a sweep after the Lady Bruins cruised to a 76-29 win over the Lady Cycs.

    The boys game was tighter as the Bruins and Cyclones battled to the wire.

    Lancaster, 5-2, held a 39-35 lead at the break and the game was close to the end.
