Teamwork lifts Carey past Calhoun
(Page 2 of 2)
In a game that saw 16 lead changes, Carey trailed, 42-40, heading into the fourth quarter, but used a 14-point run to take command. Denner, who led the Seahawks in scoring for a fifth straight game, had back-to-back baskets in the paint to put them ahead for good. The outburst continued with field goals by Gallant and senior James Harrison, a couple of free throws by Denner, and finally a three-pointer by DeMeo. “Every time they started to get a little momentum, somebody stepped up for us,” Kelly said.
Calhoun cut the 54-42 deficit down to seven on a trey by senior Tom Murphy with three minutes remaining but could get no closer. Harrison and sophomore Nick Spillane added eight points apiece for the surging Seahawks.
Despite the setback, Kreutzberger said the Colts are looking forward to the playoffs. “Our seniors have played in a playoff game, but our young guys haven’t,” he said. “Today was an example of the intensity they can expect. Being able to raise our level of play to match the opponent is an important thing because there are no bad teams in the playoffs.”
