As Thursday night’s game drew to a close, the nail biting grew more and more intense. The game went back and forth for what seemed like hours, but in reality, it was only 4 quarters of brilliantly played basketball from both sides.

Our Trojans started the first quarter with a huge lead of 16-2, including Trahjan Krupinski’s buzzer beater to add 3 to the already lopsided scoreline. By half, Trah had 14 points and led the Trojans into a 23-15 score.

The third quarter spelled some minor disaster to the defense of our Trojans, allowing Dallas to pull ahead with a 32-31 lead going into the final quarter of this energetic game.

With four minutes remaining, Dallas still held a 1 point lead (42-41), but with some late game solid shots from Trahjan and a respectable 5 points from foul shots from Colby Butczynski, the Trojans came out on top with a 55-48 win over Dallas’ Mountaineers.

This win not only extends our winning streak to five, but it also proves that we can outplay and outlast teams of similar records. Dallas was 13-2 before losing to our very athletic and capable boys.

Trah finished the game with 24 points and 13 rebounds, proving a formidable force for games to come. Jake Krupinksi also proved his worth in Thursday night’s game by putting up 10 points and having some strong and decisive rebounds. Nate Kreitzer added 12, and Colby Butczynski with 9 to close out a well-played game by both sides.
