Expectations for the Trumbull vs. St. Joe’s basketball game were high, but the boys and girls’ teams displayed that they could surpass any bars set by the fans. The competitive environment provided by Fairfield University on Saturday, January 13th pitted the cross town rivals against each other. In a thrilling double-header, with the girls game followed by the boys, Trumbull snatched two victories to improve its records to 10-0 and 8-1, respectively.

The Eagles soared to a 49-32 victory led by Cassi Barbato and Julie Keckler, with eight points a piece. Center Brady Lynch fought hard to regain possession of the ball ending the game with eleven rebounds.

The boys’ 63-61 victory was led by Chris Brown’s twenty-four points. Although the big lead that Trumbull established early in the game was lost, they quickly regained the upper hand on the Hog rivals thanks to the combined 28 points produced by Timmond Williams and Quentar Taylor.

Senior Jessica Lipinski was especially proud of her teammates’ prowess on the court, stating that “We came out strong right from the beginning and played very unselfish. The scoring was even across the board. No one player had all of our points.

Everyone was an equal contributor to the game and with this win we are now 10-0, which is a record that we are very proud of.”
The girls will face Westhill High School in an away game while the boys will defend their home court against the Vikings on Friday 1/26. Come support the Eagles!
