Warriors survive

Brookwood sweeps John Paul II in pair of close games



Brookwood    51

John Paul boys    46

The Warriors, who never trailed, looked like they would have an easy win late in the third quarter. Brookwood, which led 19-10 at halftime, pushed that advantage to a game-high 14 when Jacob Sloan scored with 1:54 left in the period to make it 36-22.

John  Paul, though, responded with an 8-0 run to close the quarter and keep itself in the game. The Panthers finished that run with five points in the final second of the third. After Frank Tracy scored and was fouled with 0.5 seconds remaining, he hit the free throw before Brookwood attempted a length-of-the-floor inbounds pass that hit the ceiling. John Paul then hit a shot at the buzzer to pull with 36-30.

There, Brookwood quickly pushed the lead back to double digits as Hampton Worthey scored and Jake Piazza drained a pair of free throws in the first minute. However, John Paul kept answering and actually pulled within 47-44 with 42 seconds left when Tracy hit a free throw. His bucket 10 seconds later again made it a three-point game before Brookwood closed it out.

Sloan paced the Warriors with 16 points and four steals, while Piazza and John Stauffer each added eight. Tracy led the Panthers with 14. Marshall Moyle added eight points and seven rebounds.
