Late boys basketball: Fondy Springs downs Eagles

By

Sheboygan Christian’s boys basketball team maintained a manageable deficit through most of Saturday’s non-conference tilt at home against St. Mary’s Springs.

But clutch free-throw shooting down the stretch helped the Ledgers hand the Eagles a 62-48 loss.

“It slowly got away,” Christian coach Brett Flipse said of the game’s waning minutes, when his players tried fouling St. Mary’s players — who made their free-throws — to claw back into the game.

“It was a close game the whole time,” he said.

Caleb Kelley and Josh Stecker both scored 10 points to lead Christian (3-4). Eddie Windsor added nine points.

Tony Schmitz drained 20 points to lead St. Mary’s (5-3).
