Curley defeats Digital Harbor by two

The visitors from Digital Harbor got off to a quick start, taking an early 20-6 lead over host Archbishop Curley, in a non-league boy’s basketball game on Tuesday.  However, Curley would rally to take a late lead and then held on for 48-46 victory.

Nine different players would record points in the first two quarters to help the Rams maintain a double digit lead heading into the half, but Curley would respond in the third quarter, fueled by three three-pointers from senior guard Brandon Knapp, who would lead all scorers with 12 points. His shooting performance would help Curley close the gap to six entering the final quarter that turned into an exciting back and forth battle between the two teams.

Curley would break Digital Harbor’s pressure to get there layups from senior James Price in the fourth quarter. The Rams Markus Hocker would respond with a three-point basket to add to his team-high point total of nine.  Knapp responded with his fourth three of the half to tie the game again.

The Friars would cling to a two point lead thanks to a layup from Price and a made free throw from junior point guard Travis Dobbins heading into the last possession of the game.  Digital Harbor would get two looks at the basket including a three-point attempt that rimmed out as time expired, giving Curley a hard fought victory.
