WHITEMARSH — In just the second game of this basketball season, the ultra-young Plymouth Whitemarsh Colonials met up with probably the most veteran team they will face all season.

Conestoga High played just seven players Saturday night, all seniors.

PW started one senior, one junior, two sophomores and a freshman.

PW, now 1-1, did look young at times against the cohesive play of the Pioneers (2-0).
