Summit Academy edges Mohawk
Summit Academy (60) Vs. Mohawk (56)
Feb 03, 2011
Down and out in the eyes of most, Mohawk showed it’s going to fight to the end in a narrow Section 2-AA defeat to Summit Academy.
The Warriors used a fourth-quarter surge to nearly upset the Knights, tied for first in the section.
Lucas Grim scored all nine of his points in the final three minutes, including two 3s. He made one of two free throws to pull Mohawk (1-8, 4-13) within one with 19 seconds to go. Summit Academy (8-2, 11-6) then made one of two free throws, and the Warriors had a chance to tie with about 15 seconds remaining, but a turnover ended those hopes.
Mohawk coach Kevin Wrona said the Warriors won’t give in during a trying season.
“That’s the one thing with this team right now, they haven’t quit on the season, and they’re not quitting in games,” Wrona said. “Unfortunately, we’re coming up short on the scoreboard, but their effort has been great.”
Tim Glass led all scorers with 24 points and also grabbed 10 rebounds for the Warriors. Mohawk was tied with the Knights at halftime and stayed within a few points for much of the game. The lead swelled to eight with 1:05 left, and that’s when Grim and the Warriors made their run.
“That says a lot about how we’re playing right now,” Wrona said. “With the season we’re having, I think a lot of teams would have quit, but not these kids. We’re looking forward to these last three games. We want to play spoiler.”
