St. Joe’s Senior's topples IC in overtime thriller

The St. Joseph School Senior Division (7th/8th grade) basketball team improved their record to 2-1 in the Middlesex Catholic Elementary School League with a nail-biting 50-48 overtime victory over Immaculate Conception (IC) of Revere.

St. Joe’s withstood a furious rally which saw IC come back from a 6-point late-game deficit to tie the score on a free throw with one-tenths of a second left in regulation. In the overtime, St. Joe’s again jumped out to a 6-point lead only to see IC make another run, but fall short.
The highly entertaining and well-played game featured some clutch shooting and heroic play from both the St. Joe’s starters and reserves. John Ferrara (9 points, 8 rebounds, 5 blocks) and Steve DiMauro (6 points, 5 rebounds) were an inside force while Bobby Rockland (10 points, 4 assists, 2 steals) and Patrick McTague (12 points, 3 assists) ran a high-octane fast break and ball-hawking defense. Also making a big impact with sensational play were Connor MacIsaac (4 points, 5 rebounds) and Philip Kelly (4 rebounds, 3 steals).

St. Joe’s Juniors post comeback winThe St. Joseph Junior Division (5th/6th grade) team overcame an early deficit to post a dramatic come-from-behind 26-23 win over St. Anthony’s of Everett, improving their record to 3-1 in the Middlesex Catholic Elementary School League. Despite falling behind 9-0 and struggling to generate any offense, St. Joe’s utilized a late first-half surge, spearheaded by Jack Albanese (5 points, 4 rebounds) and Gianfranco Colella (6 points, 2 assists) to get back in the game.
In the second half, team leader Sebastian Allien (9 points, 4 assists, 3 steals) utilized his speed and quickness to keep St. Joe’s alive with a series of slashing lay-ups. With both teams exchanging baskets and the game up for grabs, Patrick Kelly (4 points, 5 rebounds), Shawn Maloney (2 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals) and Michael Doyle (4 rebounds, 2 blocks) provided a much-needed spark to give St. Joe’s the lead for good. To St. Anthony’s credit, they battled back to keep the outcome in doubt until the final buzzer sounded.
