A lot of disappointment

The loss at Knott Arena on Thursday night to NEC foe Wagner wasn't the worst part.

It was how the 83-75 overtime defeat occured.

The Mount led by as many as 19 in the first half, 11 at intermission, 14 early in the second half, and seven at 60-53 with less than 5 minutes to play, yet couldn't finish off the Seahawks.

The Mounties started incredibly hot from the floor and led 26-11, 10 minutes in. Chris Vann and Will Holland both made a couple of early long range jumpers as the Mount pushed the pace.

Jeremy Goode led the Mount with 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists. Yet he really struggled from the floor and finished just 4-of-17. Vann also knocked in 15, while Holland finished with 14 including a three with 17 seconds left to force overtime. But his jumper at the buzzer was blocked.

Wagner with Dorell Vinson and James Ulrich controlled the boards and got countless second chance points. Mark Porter took over the game in the second half and finished with a game-high 25.

The two Gettysburg athletes, Storm Woerner and Zac Michael, who both signed Letters of Intent, to continue their football careers at Wagner yesterday were in attendance.

The Mount is at Monmouth on Saturday night.
