Everybody’s a winner at basketball fund-raiser

State Reps. Brendan Boyle and Kev­in Boyle raised $2,560 for the Fraternal Or­der of Po­lice Lodge 5 Sur­viv­ors Fund last week­end dur­ing a youth bas­ket­ball tour­na­ment at Ab­ra­ham Lin­coln High School.

Brendan Boyle (D-170th dist.) star­ted the tour­na­ment after tak­ing of­fice in 2009 to bol­ster the sur­viv­ors fund in the wake of a series of murders of Phil­adelphia po­lice of­ficers. Kev­in Boyle (D-172nd dist.), his young­er broth­er, joined the cause after tak­ing of­fice this year. The tour­na­ment was open to boys and girls sev­enth- and eighth-grade teams.

The girls cham­pi­on was St. Mat­thew, which de­feated St. Chris­toph­er, 27-16, in Sunday morn­ing’s fi­nal.

The boys cham­pi­on was St. Bede the Ven­er­able, of Hol­land, Bucks County, a 38-30 win­ner over North­wood Academy Charter School. ••
