Braves pull away from Spartans

 

Spartans junior captain Graham Herrick looks on after passing to a teammate. Herrick scored a team high 14 points for Monument.

GREAT BARRINGTON — The Monument Mountain Spartans just couldn’t seem to get over the hump.
After cutting the deficit down to one twice in the second half, first off of a Noah Helmke three point play to start the third quarter and then later in the game about halfway through the fourth quarter, Graham Herrick converted a three point play to makeit 42-41. But the Taconic Braves always seemed to have an answer as they led wire-to-wire to upset the 17-3 Spartans, 55-46 on Senior Night.

“We turned the ball over way too much and a lot of them came when we were trying to make our come back and had a chance to put more pressure on them had we got a shot off. When you aren’t shooting well, you have to at least get a shot off and those turnovers came back to bite us,” said Spartans head coach Mike Saporito.

The back breaker came when Isaac Percy hit back to back three pointers that turned a two point game all of a sudden into an eight point game with about a minute left in the game.
“Just a loss of concentration on two consecutive trips allowing them to score on those trips ultimately did us in,” said Saporito.

Percy scored 10 of his game high 24 points in the fourth quarter, none bigger than those back to back threes down the stretch.
