ZCHS Freshman Coaches, players and fans alike exhaled a sigh of relief when Alec McCarty finally sealed the game with seconds remaining by knocking down a couple of free throws in overtime with Guerin Thursday night.

The Eagles managed to fire back with two straight three-pointers from Zach Whitham and one from Cole Maxwell in the 4th quarter to send the game into overtime. The Eagles held Guerin scoreless in overtime to grind out a victory over Guerin 36-32. The eagles were led in scoring by Zach Whitham and Kyle Reasoner with 11 points each. Cole Maxwell contributed 9 points and 9 rebounds while Alec McCarty added 5 points.
