Furious fourth quarter rally earns STC cagers 65-63 win over Pinny

PINCONNING – Down 30-23 at intermission, St. Charles’ varsity boys’ basketball team rallied for a dramatic 65-63 win at Pinconning last Tuesday.

STC poured in 22 points in the fourth quarter to overtake their hosts.

The Bulldogs were led by Matt Benson and Austin Kelly, who scored 16 points apiece. Cody Whiren canned a dozen markers and Blake Berent added 11 points.

Benson led the ‘Dawgs with five steals and Berent was the team’s top rebounder with six caroms.

“We limited our turnovers to just 13 tonight and our guys have taken ownership of taking better care of the ball,” commented STC mentor Brad Henry, whose team improved to 6-8 on the season. “I thought our defense in the second half was much more suffocating, which created a lot of turnovers.”
