Vincentian's Laura Primyon hit four 3-pointers, and the Royals erased a 10-point deficit in a whirlwind fourth quarter to down rival North Catholic, 54-50, in the WPIAL Class A girls basketball title game this afternoon at the Palumbo Center.

Abby Bartoszewicz hit the go-ahead free throw with 55.9 seconds to go, 40 seconds after Primyon tied the game with her fourth 3-pointer of the quarter.

It is the 6th championship for Vincentian (25-1). North Catholic (20-6) was trying to extend its record to 17 WPIAL titles.
