Orion trips Tigers in overtime

Tuesday’s match-up of future Three Rivers Conference foes in Orion proved to be a near dead heat. In the end, after four quarters of play and an overtime period, the host Orion Chargers prevailed over the Princeton Tigers 31-29.

Tiger coach Jesse Brandt said while both teams shot poorly, both played good defense, enabling the low-scoring affair. PHS shot 27 percent from the field at 10-37, only 23 percent on two-point field goals (5-22)

“We had our chances,” Brandt said. “We gave up two offensive rebounds in overtime that probably were the difference in the game.”

Junior J.J. Vaccaro led the Tigers with 13 points.

PHS was up 17-12 at the half and 23-22 after three quarters, but Orion forced overtime with the score tied at 27 at the end of regulation.
