Trinity escapes Memorial with 2-point win

The Trinity Pioneers went on the road and escaped Manchester Memorial with a 66-64 victory on Tuesday night.

With the game tied at 61-61 with 30 seconds on the clock, Trinity’s Shawn O’Neil and Memorial’s Jack Brooks traded three pointers on back-to-back possessions just 10 seconds apart to tie the game again at 64-64. Trinity’s Jordan Torres then drove to the basket and was fouled with 10 seconds left. He went 1-for-2 from the line and that proved to be the difference.

The Pioneers (3-2) handed the Crusaders (3-1) their first loss on the young season.

Leading the way for Trinity was O’Neil with 20 points, while Evan Dunker (16) and Kevin Doherty (11) both added double digits. Memorial was paced by 16 points from Bory Bory, 13 from Brooks and 12 from Christian Bilolo.
