Trivium Preparatory Academy
Scottsdale Preparatory Academy 1 (Scottsdale, AZ)
The Knights traveled on the road to a hostile environment to play the Scottsdale Prep C1 Spartans. These two teams had an epic battle last Friday and this game was just as fantastic. The Knights jumped out to an early 8-2 lead in the first half. The Spartans got right back into the ball game with their sound offensive play and went up 16-11 at halftime. The Knights started off slow in the second half and were down as much as 15 points but came back to tie the game at 26. In the final moments the Spartans got an offensive rebound and a Spartan Guard knocked down a timely floater to put the spartans up 28-26. The Knights were fouled on the next possession but made one of two free throws and were down 27-28 with seconds remaining. The Knights had several chances to take the lead but couldn’t get over the hump. The Spartans won a tough ball game and these two teams split their season series at one a piece. It would be great for both teams to meet in the championship game but they will have work to do in a tough “C” division!!! Great job Knights and look forward to next Wednesdays game at 4pm against Cicero Prep C2.
