Plum falls in quarters

Plum showed it could play with top-seeded Bishop Canevin early, but it couldn't hold off the Crusaders late and dropped a 5-2 decision in a PIHL Penguin Cup Class AA quarterfinal playoff game Wednesday night at Mt. Lebanon Ice Arena.

The No. 8 seeded Mustangs finish the season with a 9-11-1 record.

The teams exchanged goals across the first two periods, with Bishop Canevin (17-1-2) holding a 3-2 lead.

David Stonebraker got Plum on the board in the first, set up by Joe Randazzo and Andrew Walters. Randazzo added a goal from Walters in the second.

But Bishop Canevin scored the final three goals, including two in the third period, to put the game out of reach.

Plum goaltender Taylor Cestra turned away 37 of the 42 shots.

Austin Large had five points (two goals, three assists) for the Crusaders.
