“I see no reason to continue with it,” said council president Les McFarland.

Trojans fall to Canterbury in 2OT regional championship

March 15, 2012

BOURBON — Clay Yeo got the record, but the Trojans fell short of a repeat regional championship.
Yeo’s driving layup from the lane with 1:22 left in regulation secured him Triton’s all-time scoring record, but when Davis Rao buried a 3 from the wing on the other end, the announcement was drown out by the Canterbury fans.
Rao’s triple sparked an 8-0 run as Kai Foday knocked down a big one-and-one with 28 seconds on the clock to knot the game up at 48-all and force overtime, and the 6-3 forward followed up with an overtime-opening trey of his own to put the Cavaliers up 51-48.
