JOHNSTOWN, Pa. — Damon Gordon and Ryan Harper each had 22 points to lift Southern Fulton to a 63-54 win over Conemaugh Valley in the first round of the PIAA Class A state tournament Friday at University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

Conemaugh Valley jumped out to a 7-0 lead before the Indians (22-4) got their bearings. They leaned on Gordon and Harper to carry them.

“They both had really nice games, especially Damon. And we needed it,” said Southern Fulton coach Kent Hendershot. “We really came out flat in the first half and he scored 16 points and kept us in it. We weathered the storm because of his shooting.”

Harper also had 13 rebounds and J.C. Munson added nine points and three assists.

Southern Fulton will play Vincentian Academy in the second round on Tuesday. The site of the game is yet to be determined.
