Central Catholic Over Everett in a Nail Biter

Central Catholic High School, trailing for the entire game and down by one with less than 5 seconds to play, scored an incredible comeback to defeat Everett 47-44 at Reading High School. As usual the comeback was keyed by Billy Marsden, who sank four key free throws in those last 4.7 seconds to seal the Central Catholic win. Marsden was blanketed all night by Everett and held down, but broke loose at the end to drive the nails into Everett’s coffin. Carson Desrosiers was held down as well, with Everett’s outstanding (and tall) front line playing some great defense on him. But Desrosiers broke loose for a monster dunk as Central was making its run, setting the stands on fire and lighting up his teammates. Everett looked ready to knock out CCHS, but made a key strategic error by fouling Marsden in the backcourt with less than five seconds left while in the penalty, giving Marsden two free throws, which he made to seal the deal. Central Catholic will visit the Tsongas Arena in Lowell to play on Sunday, with their opponent yet to be determined.
