Calvert Hall coach Mark Amatucci's patience finally reaped rewards last night.

Senior guard Jared Woodley scored 17 points, and the ninth-ranked Cardinals scored 10 of their 14 fourth-quarter points from the free-throw line to edge visiting No. 8 St. Frances, 48-45.

The victory gave Calvert Hall (9-7) its first Catholic League victory after back-to-back losses to Mount St. Joseph last Friday and Towson Catholic on Sunday.

"We've been playing like this the past two games, but we just came up short," Amatucci said. "It's nice to get the win because we played well for a full 32 minutes."

The Cardinals took 13 of their 19 free-throw trips in the final quarter and converted 10 of them. By contrast, the Panthers went 0-for-2 from the foul line.

"We really did a nice job of stopping their penetration and taking away a lot of easy shots," Amatucci said.

With 12.5 seconds left and Calvert Hall up by two, Cardinals junior guard Randall Graves hit one of two free throws.

St. Frances called a timeout, but could not tie the score with a three-pointer.

Senior forward Delbert Randall recorded eight points and eight rebounds for Calvert Hall.
