Vikings' 4th-quarter rally beats Tornado

By James D. Horne jhorne@paducahsun.com

St. Mary overcame an eight-point deficit at the end of the third quarter and went on to down visiting Paducah Tilghman 55-45 in a Second District game Tuesday night.

St. Mary (10-4, 1-0 2nd District) saw Patrick Hubert score the game high of 17 points and McCall Overstreet contributed 14.

Tilghman (8-5, 1-1 2nd District) was paced by Sayveon McEwen's 15 points.

"Tilghman was really ready to play," St. Mary coach Greg Overstreet said. "They kind of outplayed us those first three quarters. I think it's a tribute to our seniors: they got into the fourth quarter and never really panicked. They really played a nice quarter."

The Blue Tornado used a 7-0 run and took a 41-33 lead on Mikey Davis' layup with 1.5 seconds remaining in the third.

The Vikings answered by outscoring Tilghman 20-4 in the fourth and made the final score when Hubert hit two free throws with 16.7 seconds left. St. Mary took the lead for good, 44-42, with 4:45 to play on Tyler Dome's 3-pointer.

Tilghman coach Brad Stieg was called for a technical foul with 2:18 left in the game. That resulted in Hubert making two free throws and putting the Vikings ahead 49-44.

"We just didn't finish the game off," Stieg said. "We had an eight-point lead and were in position, but we just played awful in the fourth quarter. Give St. Mary credit and Hubert stepped up for them in the fourth."
