Boys basketball: Trojans triumph in overtime

Some key shots down the stretch, plus an unusual mistake on its opponent’s part, made for the right combination in the Weston high boys basketball team’s game against Kolbe-Cathedral.

The Trojans led by just two points in the waning seconds when a technical foul called against Kolbe gave them two free throws, which they made for a little more breathing room. The Cougars did get the ball one last time, scoring an additional basket but Weston survived the threat for a 60-58 win in overtime last Tuesday, Jan. 22, at the Shehan Center in Bridgeport.

It was Weston’s second overtime win of the season, the other coming 70-65 against Newtown.

Both teams fought for control for most of the game. The Cougars, who led 26-23 at halftime, kept a step ahead of the Trojans until the end of the third quarter.

That was when Charlie DiPasquale hit a buzzer beating, three-point shot from half-court that tied it at 35-35.

“It was a good momentum booster for us,” said Weston head coach Mike Hvizdo.

The game would go down to the wire in the final quarter. Weston led 47-44 with 30 seconds left but the Cougars hit a three-pointer with two ticks on the clock, forcing overtime.

The lead went back and fourth in the extra period and the Trojans were up by two in the last seconds when Kolbe was hit with a technical foul for calling a timeout, surpassing their limit for the frame. DiPasquale hit two free throws to put the Trojans up 60-56 before the Cougars added one more basket but not enough before time expired.

DiPasquale led Weston with 21 points, including three three-pointers, and had four rebounds. He had a good defensive game as well with six steals.

Both Grant Limone and Erik Dammen-Brower sank 12 points with 13 rebounds. Asher Lee-Tyson scored nine with five assists.

Three days later Weston hosted Pomperaug. A physical team, the Panthers were better than the Trojans expected and it remained anyone’s game until the Trojans made a slim lead stand up for a 50-46 win.

DiPasquale again led Weston with 21 points. He had four rebounds. Asher Lee-Tyson scored nine with nine assists and had five steals on defense.

Pascal Arvoy scored eight and led in rebounds with 11 and Grant Limone scored six with nine rebounds.

The game also marked the return of Troy Flynn, who was out for several weeks with a bone bruise in his leg.

Scheduled as the season-opener, Weston’s game at Bristol Central was postponed twice before it was played on Saturday. Things started well enough for Weston but the hosts had plenty of time to respond, which they did for a 7-55.

The loss ended Weston’s four-game winning streak.

“They’re a good team,” noted Hvizdo. “The have a little bit more size.”

He felt his team played one of its best first quarters of the season, leading 18-15 after one frame. The lead was as a high as eight in the second before the Rams responded, scoring 22 points to lead 37-30 at halftime.

The Trojans remained within 10 points after three quarters but in the fourth frame things turned sour as the visitors were called for a number of fouls, allowing the Rams to sink free throws to expand their lead.

DiPasquale led Weston with 15 points and had five rebounds and four assists. On defense he came up with four steals.

Dammen-Brower added 11 points and Limone scored 12 with eight rebounds. Asher Lee-Tyson scored eight and had eight assists and four steals. Arvoy score four and led in rebounds with 20.

Weston, now 6-6 overall, visits Immaculate on Friday and hosts Joel Barlow on Tuesday. Both games are at 7 p.m.
