Eleven different players scored for St. Paul’s on Monday afternoon as the Crusaders breezed past Archbishop Curley in East Baltimore, 69-50, to improve to 16-1 in the competitive MIAA B Conference.  Lamont Wade led the way with 20 points, 12 of which came in the first half when the Crusaders raced out to a 38-20 lead. Wade also pulled down 10 rebounds, his second straight double-double for the Crusaders.

The loss dropped the Friars to 6-7 in the conference.

Wade (5), Nigel Sydnor (5), and Cliff Cornish (4) helped Saint Pauls take an 18-13 first quarter lead which they never relinquished.  Tanner Brooks and Sydnor finished with 11 and 10 points, respectively, on the day.  Daxter Miles led Curley with 20 and Ben Huff added 15.

“We have a lot of guys who can step up,” said Crusader coach Seth Goldberg.

It was the third win in the last four days for St. Paul’s. The Crusaders defeated St.Mary’s, 59-50, on Friday, and they beat Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 60-51, on Saturday.

“The way we’re playing, we’re really sharing,” added Goldberg.

The wins have allowed Saint Pauls to keep pace with Glenelg Country School in the conference. The Dragons, who have only one loss, gave the Crusaders their only conference loss recently.

Both teams have key games scheduled for Tuesday.  Curley hosts Mt.Carmel, and St. Paul’s hosts Gilman, weather permitting.
