From what you see here, it will be obvious that I did not attend the D II second-round boys basketball game on Friday night. I searched but found no other coverage from which to draw information except the tweets sent out by Amity’s Athletic Director.

From the numbers, it appears to have been a very exciting, tight, neck-in-neck game, but I can’t tell you much more.

At the end of the first quarter, Manchester was ahead 15 – 12.

The Spartans rallied, and by halftime, the game was tied at 31.

Manchester pulled ahead again and had a 7-point lead, 49-42, at the end of the third quarter

But the nailbiting excitement came in the final quarter.

With just 4:22 remaining Amity had tied things up again at 49-49.

Yet with 2:12 left, Manchester had a 54-51 lead.

Less than a minute later, Amity tied them at 54, and 18 seconds after that they gained a 2 point lead of 56-54.

But, it didn’t last for long, Manchester tied them with 50.6 remaining.

And the 56-56 game went into overtime.

OVERTIME

From the tweets that were sent out, you can see that both teams battled hard for a victory:

57-56 Amity 3 min

61-60. 34 sec. Amity on the line

62-60. 34 sec. Manchester ball. Timeout

5.9 sec. 62-60 Amity. Amity on the line

63-60. 5.9 sec. Manchester ball timeout

Amity wins! 63-60

The Spartans (17-5) advance to the Division II Quarters against Stamford (15-7) at Amity, on Monday, March 12 at 7 p.m.
