A late bucket by Jacob Koons gave Trimble a 62-59 over Wahama on Tuesday night.
Trimble coach Curt Moore called this game a big win for his team as they were able to win what he called an ugly game.
Wahama would start off the game hot, making their first four shots and utilizing their great ball movement, to jump out to a 10-2 lead.
After a timeout by Coach Moore, his team responded with a run of their own giving the Tomcats a 15-12 lead after the first quarter. It looked like Trimble was going to pull away in the second quarter, but Wahama finished off the half on a 12-5 run, making the score 33-28 Trimble after two quarters.
In an ugly third quarter, Trimble finished with nine points and seven fouls, keeping Wahama in the game.
With less than two minutes in the game and the score tied at 55, Wahama senior Austin Jordan drained a three, forcing Coach Moore to call a timeout.
After Wahama went 1-of-2 from the foul line and holding a four-point lead, Trimble broke through when Jake Kish knocks in a three of his own, making it a one-point game.
A Wahama turnover gives the ball back to Trimble setting up Koons for a shot from the paint with 13.3 seconds left to give Trimble the final lead of the game.
Koons and Cody Bragg led Trimble tonight with 14 points each, with Koons adding four rebounds and Bragg having three of his own. Wahama’s Jordan and Wyatt Zuspan were the big scorers for the team, combining for 25 points (12 from Zuspan and 13 from Jordan.) Jordan also had four boards, three assists, and three steals.
Trimble will be looking to keep this momentum when going into Waterford on Friday night. Wahama will try to rebound from this tough loss at home against Miller on Friday night.
