Boys win overtime thriller, girls lose tough game to division rival
Matt Chistopher nailed a three-pointer with seconds remaining to send Unionville into overtime, Tuesday, against Sun Valley. The Indians didn’t waste the opportunity, edging Sun Valley 60-57, to pick up their second Ches-Mont American Division win of the season.
Meanwhile, the Unionville girls’ basketball team’s hopes of a division title dimmed after a difficult loss to Sun Valley, 49-31, Tuesday night.
In the boys’ game, after Christopher’s shot send the game into overtime, Tyler Fries took over and scored a couple of key baskets to lead the Indians to the win. Mike Sundry led all Unionville scorers with 16 points, while Christopher added 11 and Fries had 10.
In the girls’ contest, the Indians struggled from the outset, unable to score in the early going. The Vanguards, looking to avenge their only league loss of the season — to Unionville early last month — played tough first half defense. The Indians (10-8, 6-4 in the Ches-Mont American) fall to fourth place in the league behind Sun Valley, Great Valley and West Chester Rustin.
