McQuaid Holds Off Pesky Mendon

Zaepfel has enough answers for Knights
Charlie Zaepfel broke a 54-all tie with just under five minutes to play and McQuaid finally fought off Mendon for a 75-68 win at McQuaid Monday afternoon. 

The Knights led by four at the half, but Mendon came out with an 11-3 spurt to go on top 41-37. 

Zaepfel answered with tricky layup and a foul that triggered a 9-0 Knights run. McQuaid led 52-46 after three quarters. 

Dave Singh opened the fourth quarter with back to back three's for the Vikings that erased the six point deficit. 

After an exchange of buckets, Zaepfel got inside for a scoop shot that put McQuaid up for good at 56-54.

A Tyree Fisher putback extended the lead to 60-56, but Mendon would not go away. Nick Keneally hit a tough reverse layup to get Mendon back within two, only to have Jake Fenlon bury an off-balance three at the other end for McQuaid. 

Mendon got the next four points and trailed only 63-62, but McQuaid hit two free throws to move in front again by three. After a Vikings missed three with two minutes to play, Zaepfel ran the shot clock down and spun in a layup. Seconds later, he forced a turnover and pushed the ball ahead to Sincere Ramashai who scored the last relevant bucket of the game and gave McQuaid a 69-62 lead. 

Zaepfel led all scorers with 23 points, while Fenlon had 21 and Ramashai added 13. 

Baglieri's 21 points topped the Vikings. Keneally and Justin Ruback also scored 14 points apiece. 

McQuaid is now 8-5 while Mendon falls to 5-5.
