Still undefeated

Trinity boys hold off Nashua South


MANCHESTER — When the Trinity of Manchester and Manchester Central boys basketball teams meet Sunday afternoon, there's a good chance both will be unbeaten in Division I.

Trinity, last year's Division I champion, remained undefeated by fending off Nashua South 64-54 Tuesday night. The Pioneers don't play again before Sunday and will enter the Central game with a 5-0 record.

Central, which didn't play Tuesday night, will carry a 3-0 record into Friday night's game against Keene. The Blackbirds were 0-4 entering Tuesday's game against Bishop Guertin of Nashua.

Trinity received 17 points from both center Wenyin Gabriel and forward Carmen Giampetruzzi in its victory over South, which dropped to 3-1 following the loss. Yordy Tavarez led the Panthers with 17.

South led 22-17 after one quarter, but Trinity led 34-33 at halftime and 47-41 after three quarters.

It was all South early.

The Panthers scored the game's first seven points and led 22-17 after one quarter. Tavarez led all scorers with 10 points in the opening eight minutes, including three 3-pointers.

Trinity scored the first six points in the second quarter, however, and took its first lead, 23-22, when Gabriel made two free throws with 6:31 left in the half.

After a 9-0 run, the Pioneers opened up their largest lead of the half, 34-26, with 2:01 remaining in the quarter.

South scored the final seven points in the half, but Trinity carried a 34-33 lead into hafltime.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
