January 17 – Ramsey, NJ – In a night, BC didn’t have its best stuff, the Crusaders scrapped and clawed for four quarters and nearly pulled off a great win on Thursday night.
The Ironmen opened a 12-4 lead and rather than let the game get away, the Crusaders continued to push tempo. Doug Edert completed a four-point play to close the lead to 16-13, but Bosco hit one more three before the end of the quarter and led 19-13 at the quarter.
In the second, Zach Freemantle’s dunk ignited the Crusader offense which closed a 30-22 deficit to close it to 30-28 at the half.
Edert gave BC its first lead of the game, 2 minutes into the 3rd, 33-32, but it lasted all too little and Don Bosco took a 40-38 lead into the final stanza.
While no other player on the roster could find a welcome rim, Matt Zona had everyone thinking about lightning striking again as he drained an impossible 3 pointer with under about 5.9 seconds to play. BC fouled the Ironmen who made one of two free throws. A last second shot was wide and a BC victory denied.
Zach Freemantle led BC scorers with 19 points. Matt Zona dropped in 18 and Doug Edert rounded out all BC scoring with 17.
Round 1 to the Ironmen. All of Crusader Nation looks forward to the rematch at Hoehl on Valentine’s Day!
Crusaders Fall to Ranney 56-55
