Patriots Get OT Win in Pennsylvania
The Pinecrest boys scored the first six points in overtime and went on to defeat Wyoming Seminary College Prep 51-47 at the Berwick Area High School Basketball Tournament Friday night.
The Patriots were scheduled to meet Berwick at 7:30 p.m. in the championship game on Saturday at the tournament being held in Pennsylvania.
Seth Callahan of the Blue Knights sank a three just before the end of regulation to send the game into overtime. But Trevion Wooten of the Patriots turned a steal into a basket to get the Patriots off on the right foot in the extra period.
Adam Cummings then went to the foul line twice and made all four free throws to give the Patriots a 50-44 lead. A three by the Blue Knights made it a one-possession game again before the Pats’ Brendan Ortiz made one of two free throws to complete the scoring.
Cummings finished with 16 points and seven rebounds. Ortiz and Justin Ray each scored nine points and Wooten had six.
Including a win by forfeit over Christian Faith Academy last week, the Patriots are now 5-1.
