Trinity Catholic extended its winning streak to 10 games with a 65-42 road win over Greenwich in an FCIAC game held on Monday night.
The Crusders, who entered the game in second place in the FCIAC, improved their overall record to 15-5 and their conference mark to 14-2. Guard Malcolm Newman scored 17 points, while forward Akim Joseph added 16 points to pace Trinity Catholic.
The visiting Crusaders held a 19-16 lead at halftime, before going into halftime with a 34-23 advantage.
“Trinity is a very good team, one of the top teams in the FCIAC, but we came out and played one of our best first quarters of the year,” GHS coach Chris Lovermi said. “We were right with them for the first quarter and most of the second half. They wore us down though, especially during the third quarter.”
Trinity outscored Greenwich 16-6 in the third quarter to open a 50-29 lead. Guards Andrew St. Louis and Rahsen Fisher scored 12 points apiece for the victors.
Greenwich was led by sophomore guard James Pilc’s nine points. Senior guard Max Steinman and sophomore forward Chason Barber each had five points and senior forward Jayden Solomon scored six for the Cardinals (4-15).
“The effort from our team was good,” Lovermi said. “We came out of the gates well and I think we took a positive step moving forward.”
