Bedford survives scare from Memorial in overtime

Bedford came from behind to force overtime and pull out the victory over visiting Manchester Memorial, 72-69, on Saturday afternoon.

The Bulldogs trailed by four at the half and needed to rally late to get to the extra stanza. Bedford led by as many as six in OT but the Crusaders cut the lead to three and had a last-second attempt to force double overtime by Ajow Luwal rattle out.

Bedford survived and improves to 9-0 on the season, while the Crusaders fall to 5-4.

Leading the way for the Bulldogs was Brady O’Connell with a game-high 23 points, while Luke Soden (17), Badoian (12) and Kasyjanski (12) also netted double digits.

Memorial was led by Christian Bilolo’s 18 points and Lavlee (11) and Brooks (10) also chipped in.
