Bruins hold off Tigers
PERU — Mike Kilmartin didn’t want to call it a holiday hangover, but his St. Bede Bruins seemed to have a little dose of it in Saturday’s game at the Academy with the visiting Princeton Tigers.
The Bruins (13-3) hadn’t played since winning the championship of the Marseilles Holiday Tournament and had nine more wins than the Tigers coming into the contest. After watching a 13-point lead shrivel to six in the third quarter, the Bruins used a 7-0 run to open the fourth quarter and outscored the Tigers 12-11 the rest of the way to post a 54-40 win in NCIC play.
“We had four games in four days and all of a sudden had a week off and thought we were pretty good,” Kilmartin said. “It’s a rivalry game. They’re 4-12 coming in; what do they have to lose? It makes their season if they beat us. I told (the Bruins) the good news is we won; the bad news is we have to go over there yet and may play them in regionals and just gave them a little thought they may be able to play with us.”
