Game Recap

Lafayette Jeff rallied from a six-point fourth quarter deficit to defeat Guerin Catholic 62-57 in boys basketball Saturday night to remain undefeated on the season.

Guerin Catholic fell behind early and trailed 30-22 at halftime. But Coach Pete Smith’s squad came roaring back after halftime. Behind Bernie McGuinness’ nine third quarter points, the Golden Eagles outscored Jeff 24-11 in the stanza to take a five point lead entering the fourth quarter.

Zach Munson made one of two free throws on the first possession of the fourth quarter to give GC a 47-41 lead. Back to back 3-pt. field goals by the Bronchos’ Alex Cotton tied the game at 47. Four lead changes took place after that in the quarter, but four GC turnovers and a 10-12 shooting effort at the free throw line by Jeff decided the contest in favor of the Bronchos (7-0).

The Golden Eagles made five more field goals in the contest than their opponents, but was outscored at the free throw line 13-1. “We settled for too many perimeter jumpers instead of attacking the rim,” said Smith. “Our shot selection and execution on offense needs a lot of improvement. We lost their main shooter in our zone some, too. I thought we fought back real well in the third quarter and started to execute, but struggled offensively against their pressure defense in the fourth quarter.”
