At a packed Bishop Guilfoyle gym, Tyrone dug itself a 23-point hole in the second quarter but the Golden Eagles were not about to give up.

Tyrone’s Sam Crilly and Kendall Lehner got hot and with two minutes to play the game Tyrone clawed the game back to a one-possession deficit, but Bishop Guilfoyle was able to secure some key defensive rebounds and run the clock out to secure the win.

We just need to keep working hard and I think that we can get where we want to be

— Brady Ronan

The 65-57 Marauder win featured several multiple double-digit scoring players. Guilfoyle’s Tyson Lestochi scored sixteen, Trevor Rehm tallied fourteen points, and Consiglio had a respectable eleven.  On the bright side for Tyrone, they held Guilfoyle’s Jude Haigh to a relatively quiet thirteen points.

Tyrone had two double-digit scorers, Crilly with nineteen and Lehner with seventeen.

Brady Ronan and Eli Woomer came in off the bench and got some good minutes that contributed to the comeback that barely fell short.

“Brady drew three charges and had what seemed like 100 rebounds, he was flying around,” said junior point guard Ashton Walk.

The first half featured an on-fire Bishop Guilfoyle offense and a slow Tyrone team.

Tyrone couldn’t get a shot to fall and they couldn’t stop the Marauder offense. Bishop Guilfoyle built up a near twenty-point lead at the half and topped it off with a Jude Haigh buzzer-beater three to go into the half up 32-16.

Tyrone came into the second half wanting to win, as they started taking chunks out of the Marauder lead. Sam Crilly’s three-point shots were starting to fall and Kendall Lehner was finding ways to get open to shorten the Bishop Guilfoyle lead.

By the end of the third quarter Bishop Guilfoyle was up 48-36 but Tyrone had the momentum.

In the fourth Everything started to come together for Tyrone, their offense was working, the defense was forcing turnovers, and the Marauders were missing crucial shots.

As the final minutes came the Marauders were able to regain their momentum and extend their lead to keep the game just out of reach for the Golden Eagles. With 30 seconds left Bishop Guilfoyle was able to pass the ball around to chew the clock and close the game out at 65-57.

Although this game didn’t go the way Tyrone wanted, it showed that they have talent and can become a great team.

“We just need to keep working hard and I think that we can get where we want to be,” senior forward Brady Ronan said.
