Holy Family wins epic two overtime semifinal

PENACOOK – In one of the most thrilling games in NHIAA tournament history, Holy Family’s Yves Mugiraneza hung in the air and connected on a last-second bucket to give the sixth-seeded Griffins an upset double-overtime victory, 86-84, over second-seeded Concord Christian on Monday night at Merrimack Valley High School in Penacook.
