(Byfield MA) You hear it all the time, but how often does it mean anything?
“It’s not over ‘til it’s over.”
Triton’s Kyle Odoy (16 points) dropped that line into our post-game interview tonight after his team rallied late in regulation and then went on to defeat Rockport, 54-51 in overtime.
Triton (5-2) certainly needed a miracle finish to get this one into overtime and they pulled it off.
Three straight free throws by Jake Knowlton (14 points) put Rockport (2-6) up, 48-43, with only twenty-three seconds left in regulation. Comfortable lead…….or so it seemed.
“We had really good shots the whole entire game and we just missed them,” recalled Triton coach Ted Schruender. “We figured that they would eventually start falling.”
