The Archbishop Ryan Ragdolls beat the Lansdale Crusaders 47-40 in the PCL opener Thursday night.

The first quarter ended 16-8 Lansdale with senior Caela Russell and Taliyah Rahman both having 3 fouls. At half it was 23-20 Lansdale.

Ryan came back in the fourth starting with a steal by Annie Cashman to give the Ragdolls a lead of 35 to 34 with five minutes left in the game and they would never look back. Cashman went 5 for 6 from the foul line in the fourth as Ryan pushed ahead. There were many fouls in the last three minutes as Lansdale tried to stop the clock and get rebounds after the 1 and 1 shots, but Cashman, Russell and Rahman sunk their shots. The Ragdolls prevailed 47-40

“Pressure free throws I just try to block out other noise and I don’t think about the pressure,” said Cashman. “In my head I just try to go back to practice where I take these everyday.”

The Ryan Ragdolls defeated Penn Charter on Friday night 47-40 at Germantown academy’s Make a Wish Showcase. The game was close throughout, just 27-23 at the half. Rahman led the Ragdolls with 19 points, and Monee Moore added 10 and Caela Russell 8 for the Ragdolls.

“I am just staying focused,listening to some good game day music and going into each game like it’s a championship game. Like we always do,” said Russell.

To cap off the weekend’s games, Ryan faced Germantown Academy on their home court to end the Make A Wish Foundation showcase. The game was tight throughout but Shayne Glenn was hot making four three point shots to keep the Ragdolls in it, with 18 total points.

The final score after a fourth quarter of many foul shots made by Ryan was 65-62.The game came down to the final second when Germantown missed a three at the buzzer which would have put the game into overtime.

“Germantown Academy really wanted to beat us since last year,” said Glenn. “They were undefeated and we broke their record. Us beating the 3rd team in the state was a great experience.”

“I don’t really think of anything differently, the goal of every game is a win, and any other stress or added pressure could mess up the game, so we just play the same and don’t think about that stuff,” said Cashman on taking on non league games.

Ryan continues their busy schedule before Christmas with a game Monday at Villa Joseph Marie Academy and Saturday at Nazareth Academy. They will play December 28-29 in Wildwood at the Boardwalk Classic then back to Catholic League play on January 2 at home against West Catholic.
