“This is the craziest game I’ve ever been in and this shows the heart of this team,” St. Joseph High’s Jake Pelletier said after coach Chris Watts’ seventh-ranked Cadets posted a pair of comebacks that defied logic and knocked third-ranked Trinity Catholic of Stamford from the unbeaten ranks with an 87-85 victory in an overtime thriller at a rollicking Vito Montelli Gymnasium in Trumbull on Tuesday night.
“We work together. We’re not the most talented, but even when Quincy (McKnight) and Raekwon (Reid) fouled out, we knew with our team anything’s possible. Our hearts are off the charts. We never give up."
