Game Recap
A buzzer beating 3pt shot by Andrew Garrett lifted host New Castle over visiting Liberty Christian Saturday night 58-55. The win was the 2nd in a row for the Trojans and a redemption victory after losing so many close games early in the season while having shots to win. This time it was the Trojans on the winning side. New Castle led for all but 2 possessions. Getting great ball movement to help knock down several 3pt shots and pushing the tempo to get baskets in transition. Abe Haler got most of his 13pts in the 1st half to lead the Trojans in scoring. Austin Orr scored 12pts and was a deciding factor getting several deflections that led to steals by his teammates, grabbing important defensive rebounds, and keeping balls alive that helped his teammates grab crucial offensive rebounds. He also went 4-4 at the foul line late in the game. It was a senior performance that helped the Trojans win a close ball game that they had been finding themselves on the wrong end of throughout this season. Andrew Garrett also added 12pts and the biggest shot of his young Trojan career knocking down a 3pt shot from what seemed to be from the parking lot to give the Trojans a three point lead with 0.9 seconds left in the game that Liberty Christian was unable to convert. The Trojans look to extend their winning streak to 3 when they host Huntington North Monday night in a make up game. The Band, Cheerleaders, and student section were tremendous throughout and the team looks forward to an even bigger and rowdier crowd Monday.
