Veritas boys rally, win

January 9, 2011


— Thomas Bachert scored 13 points and Veritas Christian’s boys basketball team rallied against St. Mary’s for a 48-42 victory on Saturday at the Eudora Community Center.

“It was a struggle to score all night,” Veritas coach Gary Hammer said. “We had to grind it out. Nothing came easy. Thankfully, we had our best quarter in the fourth quarter.”

The Eagles trailed by four points entering the final period, but outscored St. Mary’s, 19-9, in the fourth quarter.

Elijah Penny added 10 points for the Eagles, who improved to 8-2. Veritas will play host to Manhattan Chief on Friday.
