IE Weldon built up as much as a 20 point lead on the Colts, displaying composure and using last year’s OFSAA experience to put the Colts behind the eight-ball. However the Colts chipped away at the lead and took the lead for the first time with under two minutes remaining in the game. Behind the play of the city’s most valuable player and referee’s award winner, Anthony Iacoe‘s 32 points (including six 8 pointers) the Colts were able to come away with a 63-61 victory.
Game 2 wouldn’t be any easier, as the Colts would now face Dennis O’Connor from Ajax, Ontario. Dennis O’Connor boasts one of the top players in the province; 6’5 guard Obe Okolie. The game was a ‘see-saw’ affair with multiple lead changes throughout regulation.
With the Colts down 3, Sam Ivey nailed a clutch 3 point shot to send the game to overtime. In overtime the Colts pulled away and came up with the victory 68-63. Anthony Iacoe led the Colts again with 26 points (including 5 more 3 pointers). Jonah Fogg added 18 and Stephen Maloney had 10 in the win.
Day 2 of OFSAA continues tomorrow with the Colts playing in the quarter-finals tomorrow. They will square off against the host Catholic Central, from Windsor.
