Eudora Veritas Christian turned a four-point fourth-quarter deficit into a four-point high school boys basketball victory against St. Mary’s on Saturday, 49-45.
“They outplayed us for most for most of the game,” Veritas coach Gary Hammer said. “It was an ugly win. There were a few minutes in the fourth quarter where we really turned it on.”
Thomas Bachert led Veritas with 14 points, followed by Elijah Penny with 11 and Caleb Holland with 10.
“Bachert played a really strong inside game for us,” Hammer said. “His rebounding and inside defense have been big for us.”
Veritas overcame eight three-pointers by St. Mary’s.
The Eagles (7-3) will play Cair Paravel on Monday in Topeka.
