YORK, Pa. — It's either win or your season comes to an end.

Friday night kicked off the first night of the first round of the PIAA state basketball brackets. With the winter weather, some games that were supposed to be played on Friday night, will no be played Saturday.

Lancaster Catholic was able to host their game Friday night. They played Pickett Mastery Charter from District 12.

The Crusaders started hot and never let their foot off the gas. They cruised to a 68-11 win to stay alive in the AAA girls basketball bracket. They'll play New Hope-Solebury.

Central York girls also played Friday night. They hosted Souderton from District 1. At one point in the fourth quarter, the Panthers were down by seven but they didn't stop fighting. They were able to come back and tie the game at 37 to send the game into overtime. Mackenzie Wright-Rawls and Bella Chimienti lead the charge in the paint to keep Central York in the game.

The Panthers forced another overtime. Foul shots and a huge three pointer by Emily Crouthamel sealed the deal for Central York. Souderton had .5 seconds left on the clock to try and make a final play happen but the Panthers defense was too strong. Central York moves on to play Easton in the sweet 16.
