Palmyra outscored Cedar Cliff 19-10 in the fourth quarter to pull out a 61-52 victory in Palmyra. With the Keystone Division win, the Cougars improved to 10-5 overall and 5-4 in Mid-Penn play. Palmyra ran out to a 31-23 halftime lead, but after the Colts used a 19-11 spurt in the third quarter to tie the game at 42 entering the final period, the Cougars regained control of the contest, thanks in part to Shaun Robinson, who made all seven of his free throw attempts in the quarter to help salt away the win.
Palmyra, which was 10-for-11 from the line in the fourth, received 22 points from Trey Baker and another 14 by Logan Stovall
