Northfleet Tech College 72-81 HTS Storm

Holy Trinity continued with their unbeaten record in the ABL on Wednesday afternoon, beating Northfleet Tech 72-81.

Holy Trinity raced out to an early lead with a 12-4 advantage, forcing Coach Parry to call a time-out. Northfleet managed to compose themselves and rally behind some good outside shooting to trail 16-23 at the end of the first.

The game was a see-saw battle in the second with Northfleet unable to wrestle the lead from Holy Trinity, as the visitors led 37-43 at the interval.

The visitors came out of the gates in the third quarter, connecting on three triples to silence the crowd and hold a 19-point advantage with seven minutes remaining. Northfleet composed themselves and made a run of their own in the last seven minutes, only losing the third quarter by a single point, with the visitors leading 56-63.

The final quarter saw Northfleet unable to claw the game back and Holy Trinity held their nerve to win the contest 72-81.

Owen Longman led the attack for the home team with 23 points, while Miyka’el Cato-Fournillier added 17 and Evan Longman chipped in 15 for the hosts. Cameron Hildreth had an impressive 36 points and Brandon Laryea had 14 for the visitors.

Coach Parry said: “we did a great job executing our game plan and put the visitors in rotations that we were able to exploit. However, we had lapses and against an undefeated team they will punish you, which they did today.”

“Credit should go to Holy Trinity and their coaching staff who showed today why they are undefeated in the league so far.”

Northfleet Tech travel to John Roan on Monday afternoon while Holy Trinity will welcome John Roan themselves in next Wednesday’s ABL clash.
