Bishop McGuinness traveled up the mountain to Danbury Friday night to face conference opponent North Stokes. The Villains and Vikings were deadlocked at second place in the Northwest 1A going into the matchup. It would be the Villains that prevailed when the final horn sounded. Junior Jake Ledbetter led the Villains in scoring with 22 and had the steal for the final play of the game. Senior Phil McDonough scored career high 15 points and Andrew Budzinski seemed to find his stride with another double-double (13 & 10). Seniors Gus O’Hale and Phil McDonough hit clutch free throws under a minute to keep it at a two possession game for the Villains. It was McDonough’s back-to-back makes from the line to seal the 78-75 win.
The Villains will play host to rival Mount Airy Tuesday night (Senior Night) at 7:45pm.
