Junior Josh Cornish scored 21 points Wednesday night, but none were bigger than a long 3-pointer, as time expired in overtime, to lift No. 10 Calvert Hall to a thrilling 78-75 win over No. 9 Glenelg Country, in MIAA A Conference action in Ellicott City.
The game was tight game throughout as Calvert Hall led by one after the first period before Glenelg Country rallied to take a six point lead into halftime, at 29-23.
The pace of the game picked up dramatically after the break and GCS lead 50 to 46 after three. At the end of regulation the teams were all knotted up at 65.
Glenelg Country jumped out to a six point lead in overtime but the Cardinals stormed back as they scored six points in a 15 second burst. Cornish’s game winning heroics were set up by a tremendous drive and kick pass by junior Logan Curtis (18 points and 10 rebounds).
Brendan Adams, with Stanford in attendance to observe his play, scored 27 of his game high 29 after halftime.
Glenelg Country was lead by senior standouts, Jalen Gabbidon, who scored 26 points, and Anthony Longpré, who netted 25 points.
Both squads have tough non-conference games next, as Calvert Hall returns home to face No. 3 Perry Hall, on Thursday, and Glenelg Country will meet No. 2 Poly in the Power Move Winter Showcase on Saturday.
