In the conclusion of the Mid-Penn Confernece boys' basketball tournament title game Friday night, the Greencastle-Antrim Blue Devils had to settle for runnerup honors.

The game with Central Dauphin that began Thursday evening at Cumberland Valley High School has to be suspended when a CD player hung on the rim after a basket and shattered the backboard. late in the third quarter.

G-A trailed 39-30 at the time and that's where things picked up Friday. The Devils got the deficit down to five, but CD got back into its groove and sailed to a 77-55 final.

Despite the second place finish in the confernece event, it was a good warmup for the District 3-AAA playoffs.Hershey, who G-A defeated in the conference semifinals, is a 4-A team, as is Central Dauphin.

 G-A is the fifth seed in the 3A bracket and begins play by hosting 16th seeded West Perry in the Blue Devils gym at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
