Ridgefield withstands furious late comeback to defeat trumbull

RIDGEFIELD — The Ridgefield boys basketball team was trying to kill clock with a 10-point lead over Trumbull and 90 seconds remaining when the Eagles’ Quentar Taylor came in and stripped the ball, sending it high into the air.

Taylor shaked his head in frustration when his apparent steal ended up in the hands of the Tigers’ Luke McGarrity.

Good teams create their own luck, and while Ridgefield is still a work in progress, the retooled defending FCIAC champion is still among the league’s elite.

Though missed free throws and three long shots by the Eagles’ Johnny McCain created a few anxious moments, the Tigers held on for a 73-70 win in a rematch of last year’s league semifinal game to remain unbeaten in conference play.
