Beaufort Academy’s boys were just seconds away from victory Saturday, but the Eagles dropped a heartbreaker to Class 5A Stall in a 93-89 overtime thriller in the Battle of the Lowcountry at Cathedral Academy.
Nick Field’s squad had an 81-79 lead with just five seconds left, but the Warriors put up a desperation circus layup that rattled in at the buzzer to force overtime. Fueled by its newfound momentum, Stall pulled away in a hard-fought extra session to claim the victory.
Sully Gay put up a monster line for the Eagles, finishing one steal short of a triple-double. The sophomore recorded an incredible 16 points, 16 rebounds, nine steals, and six assists. Eddy Gonzalez scored 19 points to go with four rebounds, three assists, and three steals. Timmy Horgan picked up 17 points with three steals, and Amarion Wilson notched a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds to earn an All-Tournament Team selection.
Beaufort Academy (0-2) travels to Jefferson Davis on Tuesday.
