BENNINGTON — Mount Anthony and Pittsfield boys basketball were locked in a one possession game in the final minute of Tuesday night's game at Kates Gymnasium.
The Patriots elected to foul the Generals to try and get the ball back, but were called for an intentional foul sending the visitors to the line and giving them the ball back. Pittsfield’s lead ballooned to seven by the end of the game as the Generals escaped Bennington with a 53-46 win.
Austin Grogan paced MAU with 16 points. Austin Belville added 12, while Braeden BIllert chipped in with nine.
With starting guard Carter Thompson out of the lineup, Aaron Whitman took advantage of the extended playing time he saw on Tuesday, controlling the MAU offense.
