BRAVES GET A CLOSE FINISH THAT GOES THEIR WAY

MAHONING VALLEY SPORTS

KINSMAN, OHIO. The Badger Braves took on the fast paced, Windham Bombers tonight in what was a very back and forth game.

The Braves started off slow in the first quarter but finished the quarter strong with a 23-17 lead. The Braves kept pace with the Bombers and had a 37-34 lead at the half. The intensity continued in the second half as the Bombers had an answer for everything the Braves put up. Duncan Moy was the man of the night for the Braves as he dropped 34 points. Freshman, Preston Geracitano and Tyler McWilliams also had a productive night for the Braves as Geracitano scored 10 points and McWilliams hit a couple clutch three pointers in his first Varsity start for the Braves.

Jack and Chase Eye were the leading men for the Bombers as they combined for 32 points and Zach Turk dropped 16 points including four three pointers. It all came down to the final seconds of the game as Chase Eye missed the game winning shot at the buzzer and the Braves held on to win 66-64.

The Braves are now 13-3 and will go on the road this Friday night to take on the St. John Fighting Heralds.
