SUNBURY — Mount Carmel Area boys basketball coach John Lazicki probably wouldn’t mind if he never had to play Loyalsock again. Okay, he’d probably like to beat his conference and district nemesis once or twice before that, but you get the picture.

The undefeated Lancers (23-0) again showed why they are that way in beating the Red Tornadoes 77-63 Thursday in a Pennsylvania Heartland Athletic Conference semifinal at Shikellamy High School, and the frustrating part of it, for Lazicki, was (A) that his team played pretty well and (B) that the Lancers were without possibly their best all-around player, Idris Ali, who didn’t play because of illness.
