Boardman Maroon 8th Grade Boys defeated Canfield 32-31 in a thrilling Quarterfinal matchup of the AAC Tournament on Saturday 2/9. After a sluggish first half, Boardman’s defense forced several turnovers and easy scores in the third, to take as much as an 8-pt lead. Canfield rallied in the fourth quarter, behind three 3-pt goals, to quickly catch up. There were then five lead changes in a chaotic final minute of the game. The final points were a converted length-of-the court pass & layup by Brady DePietro with :07 left. Canfield then rimmed out a 3-pt attempt as the buzzer sounded. DePietro led the Spartans with 12 pts, Deon Elliott added 6 and Nate Christmas 5. Boardman improves to a 9-6 record and next has a Semifinal playoff matchup at Warren Gold on Tuesday 2/12
