Troy High hangs on for Big 10 win over CHHS

Catholic Central's Miles Perras comes down with a rebound as Troy freshman Javion Ogunyemmi hangs all over him during Tuesday's game at Troy High. The Flying Horses won, 60-57. Troy's John Pompey (32) and Elijah Jenkins (3) look on. (Photos by J.S. Carras - The Record).

The Flying Horses and the Crusaders battled back and forth after trading rallies to open the game, but it was Troy High sophomore foward Kareem Brown that woke up his teammates in the second half.

Challenged by head coach Jeff Sitterly, Brown scored all 12 of his points after halftime, sparking a third consecutive victory for the Flying Horses.

Catholic Central's Kevin Wilkes fights for a loose ball with Troy's Josh Blaauboer as Ben Hannibal (24) looks on. Wilkes scored 11 points, tying for the team-high with Shiva Senthil. Wilkes also secured seven rebounds.

Catholic Central fell behind 8-1 in the first few minutes of the game, but the Crusaders call timeout and responded with a 10-1 run to take the lead just a few minutes later.

Shiva Senthil hit three three-point field goals in the first half and Jordan McBride connected on three from long range in the final five minutes of the game, but the Crusaders just could never quite close the gap. Troy took a one-point lead on a John Pompey bucket right before the half and never relinquished the lead, although CCHS did force a few ties in the third quarter.

It was another big victory for Troy High, as the team continues to find a young player to step up night-in and night-out. Sophomores Raheem Felder, Kareem Brown and Greg Williams are all big-time contributors in the starting lineup and freshman Javion Ogunyemmi is the first forward off the bench.

It's going to take some time for this group to develop their skills enough to compete with the Christian Brothers Academy and Bishop Maginn-type schools, but every hard-fought victory like this brings them one step closer to their goal.

Next up on the schedule for Troy is La Salle Institute on Friday night. The Flying Horses just topped them in another close game in the championship contest of the Girmindl/Sand Memorial Tournament at Shaker over the break and Friday night's tilt should be another exciting game.

Check out the full story on this game in Wednesday's edition of The Record.
