Boys Varsity Basketball: BT Tops Obezags for 3rd Straight Win
The BT Warriors Boys Varsity Basketball team topped the defending champion Obezags of Key School in Annapolis!
Beth Tfiloh traveled to Annapolis to take on the defending C Conference champions who sat undefeated in conference play this year. The Obezags had won the teams' previous meeting this season, 55-52, and the Warriors were looking for a win to cement themselves as contenders.
Both teams got off to a slow start offensively as Key led 6-5 with just over 3 minutes left in the 1st, but Junior Eli G. '20 came off the bench and provided a scoring spark. With 3:15 left. Eli scored on a nice feed from Senior Gav L. '19 to give the Warriors a lead at 7-6 that they would never give up. Eli scored 7 of his 14 points in the 1st quarter, and the Warriors led 17-11 after 1. Gav scored 12 of his game high 22 points as the Warriors dominated the 2nd quarter and led 37-21 at halftime. Harris G. '19 continued his steady hand in the 3rd scoring 7 of his 17 points as Beth Tfiloh extended the lead to 54-31 after 3. The Warriors spent the 4th quarter milking the clock and held a comfortable 60-44 lead with under 2 minutes to play. The Obezags outscored Beth Tfiloh 9-2 in the final 2 minutes, including a 3 as time expired. Despite the late run, the final buzzer sounded with BT on top, 62-53! The victory leaves the Warriors comfortably in 3rd place in the conference with a 4-2 record. Go BT!
