Steamers out-charge Chargers


“They lost their head a little bit in the third quarter so we took advantage of it, started rolling with it and took the lead,” Fulton junior Zach Barber said.

Free throws proved to be an important piece to the Steamers victory as both Dail and Barber missed only one between them.

“Those are huge free throws. We practice that a lot at practice,” Barber said.

“(Free throws were) very important because we only won by three,” Dail added. “If we don’t make a couple of those we could be a tie game, we could down a couple points.”

Orion took the break between the third and fourth quarters to recharge. They matched the Steamer intensity and closed the 10-point gap down to two. During that time Fulton committed a technical foul of its own when junior guard Seth Sanderson was called for a technical after the end of a play in the fourth quarter.

The Chargers weren’t able to get any closer as the Steamers held on for the three-point victory to begin the season and the Tip-Off classic.
