Ehmil Johnson '21 and Danny Moors '20 combined for 22 points, but it was not enough as Rectory School earned a hard-fought 54-44 victory over Marianapolis in a game at Pomfret, CT.
Sean-Patrick Houssan '21 played his best game of the season, hitting three key three-pointers to finish with nine points. Co-captains Ryan Martin '20 and Luke Lageman '19 played tough inside defense and rebounded well for the Golden Knights (8-3 overall), who have lost back-to-back games for the first time this year.
Houssan and Ethan Gosper '20 kept Marianapolis close in the first half, scoring nearly half the team's points to limit the deficit to 20-17. Despite Johnson's 12 second-half points, the Golden Knights were only able to close to within six points in the final three minutes.
Rectory School played a smart game overall and made a bevy of free throws down the stretch to secure the victory. Their man-to-man defense stifled Marianapolis at times and held the squad well under their usual total of between 55 and 60.
Marianapolis needs to reset after a tough stretch and finish strong over the final three weeks of the season, starting with a home rematch against Beaver Country Day School on Wednesday, February 13.
