Tyburn Academy 59, Otselic Valley 49
AUBURN – Tyburn Academy completed a three-game sweep of the Vikings this season eliminating the Vikings from Section III postseason play Friday night.
The Crusaders led by 17 after one period putting the Vikes in catch-up mode the rest of the game. "We made a game of it, but we just fell too far behind and ran out of steam in the fourth quarter," said OV coach Dave Loomis.
OV closed the deficit to as little as three entering the fourth quarter, but managed just five points in the fourth, and the three-point margin was as close as it game.
Matt Faiola had a double-double for Tyburn Academy scoring 13 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.
Matt Neal had a game-high 24 points for the Vikes (10-10) in the loss, Jason Olin netted 11, and sophomore Jordan Baerga scored 11.
OV: Jordan Baerga, 4 1-1-11; Angel Marshall, 0; Connor Smith, 0; Austin Reynolds, 1 0-0-2; Matt Neal, 11 1-1-24 ; Coleman O’Hara, 0; Hunter Mills, ; Chris O’Hara, 0; Jason Olin, 5 1-2-12. Totals: 21 3-4-49 .
