BOYS BASKETBALL: Pope John Paul II edges Bethlehem Catholic

He came up with the battle cry for Pope John Paul II’s entry into the PIAA Class AAA playoffs.

Then Nick Demeno put his basketball talents where his mantra was Friday, helping the Golden Panthers outlast Bethlehem Catholic, 59-56, at Bethlehem Freedom High School.

Demeno scored all eight of his points in the fourth quarter of a game PJP appeared in danger of losing, sparking its comeback against District 11’s second seed. It validated the pronouncement the Panthers’ senior guard made when approached by his head coach about the status of the team’s starting lineup.
