Basketball - MS Blue vs. Loyola Blakefield

Event Type: Regular

Date: January 27, 2020


Event Recap:

In its first road game in over a month, the middle school blue basketball team headed to Loyola to take on the host Dons. Seeking to avenge a pre-winter break loss to Loyola, the Crusaders struggled early against the hosts’ tenacious and aggressive zone pressure. Numerous turnovers from the visiting Crusaders allowed the Dons to take a 14-0 first quarter lead. Following a timeout, St. Paul’s regrouped and used better ball fakes and passing to begin to claw back. Trailing by 9 at halftime, the Crusaders relied on strong play down low from Ernest Willor and a barrage of three pointers from Quinn Matthews to cut the Dons’ lead to just 4 late in the second half. A timely late run by the hosts, however, doomed the Crusaders who fell by a score of 42-29. St. Paul’s battled back and showed a lot of heart by hanging tough against an older, bigger, and more athletic opponent. St. Paul’s next takes on the Lakers from Boys’ Latin in its final home game of the season this Wednesday.
