On Tuesday, December the 9, the St. Joseph Charger faced rival Hales Franciscan High School.

Hales Franciscan came to St. Joseph expecting to take home another win for their season. Hales, now 4-1, attempted to give the Chargers a run for their money.

Hales led by 8 points in the first quarter, and still led by four points in the third quarter.

Hales could’ve won the game during regulation time, but due to such pressure from the Super Fans, it caused them to miss 4 out of 5 free throws in the fourth quarter.

Senior point guard Glynn Watson pushed in the fourth quarter and scored 9 out his 14 points to force the overtime.

During the overtime, senior Joffrey Brown hit 3 out of 4 free throws, while Northwestern-bound Jordan Ash ended with a double-double, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Watson finished out with 14 points leaving the game early due to a sprained ankle and Joffrey Brown finished the game with 14 points, as well.
