Trinity skates past Stanley at home

Feb. 27—DICKINSON — Trinity tipped Stanley, 53-43, in a come-from behind home-win that featured a game-high 14 points from senior guard Jake Shobe and a massive, 24-point final quarter that paced the Titans to the win. After taking a 24-18 deficit into the locker rooms at the half, Trinity managed to hold the Blue Jays (16-5) to 9 points in the third quarter to pull out in front and closed the gap to 33-29 before their final-period heroics.

In the first half, THS (13-7) benefited from 3-pointers dropped in by Camden Kubas and Emerson Simnioniw, while Landon Knote connected on a pair of 3s to help keep the hosts close.

The second half was an entirely separate matter for the Titans, as senior guard Jace Kovash scored all 9 of his points in the final two frames and Cade Fitterer scored 5 of his 8 points. Meanwhile, Shobe was on a tear, converting 9-of-10 of his free-throws and 13 of his 14 points in the final eight minutes.

The Blue Jays had two players in double-figures, as Drake Schlosser had a team-high 12 and Josh Hetzel came away with 11, but no other Stanley athlete crossed 10 points on the night.

Next-up for Trinity will be a home-game versus Watford City at the Knights of Columbus Activities Center on Tuesday, Feb. 27 in the regular season finale for both teams.
