Neumann-Goretti tops Carroll for Catholic boys’ title | Philadelphia Inquirer | 03/01/2010
Fireworks erupted late in the third quarter after Carroll had fought back from a 17-point deficit and was down by only 51-46. Neumann-Goretti's Tony Chennault reacted strongly to a hard foul on him by fellow wing guard Vince Mostardi, was hit with a technical foul, later assessed a second T and ejected from the final.
