St. Joseph 55, Trinity 53


Down 14 points in the second quarter to No. 10-ranked Trinity, St. Joseph looked to be in big trouble. But the scrappy Chargers kept fighting and clawed their way to a stunning 55-53 Catholic League Red win over the Blazers (15-3, 4-1) in Westchester.


With the game tied at 53-53, St. Joe’s senior Kietta Saunders slashed her way through the lane and laid in the go-ahead basket with just 15 seconds to play. Trinity’s Annie McKenna tried to force overtime but her driving layup was off the mark with four seconds left and the Chargers (8-11, 2-2) ran out the clock for the shocking win.


Saunders finished with 21 points while teammate Chanel Brown had 19. Both were incredibly clutch down the stretch, scoring all 16 of St. Joe’s fourth-quarter points. For the game, they were a combined 16-for-24 from the floor.


The Chargers shot 22-for-37 from the floor while the Blazers were 17-for-48. McKenna led Trinity with 18 points, while shooting 6-for-17.


“The ball was in my hands and me, as a captain and the point guard, I couldn’t have any turnovers. I had to win it for my team.” — Saunders
