INDIANA, Pa. — Southern Fulton’s season came to an end on Tuesday night because the Indians couldn’t get the ball through the bottom of the net for four quarters.

After three quarters and a 39-all deadlock, Southern Fulton managed only three points in the fourth quarter on the way to a 48-42 loss to Vincentian Academy in the second round of the PIAA Class A state tournment.

“We got good looks and just didn’t make them and we missed four free throws,” said Southern Fulton coach Kent Hendershot. “They were a good team and their size caused some mismatches for us.”

Ryan Harper finished his career with a 16-point, seven-rebound performance for Southern Fulton (22-5).

John Bray, a 6-foot-4 guard, led Vincentian Academy (26-1) with 22 points.

Hall 3 0-0 9, Gordon 1 0-0 3, Harper 7 0-0 16,  Munson 3 1-5 7, Smartt 2 0-0 5, Ashkettle 1 0-0 2. Totals 17 1-7 42.
