Thornton holds on to nip Cheverus
The Stags get two shots off in the final six seconds but the Trojans stay unbeaten with a 45-44 win.

...Going to the line proved Thornton Academy’s winning formula. With freshman starter Payton Jones making all four of his attempts, including the winner with 11 seconds left, Thornton made 7 of 8 free throws in the final 70 seconds of its 45-44 win against Cheverus.

“Payton is a strong-headed person. Most of our kids are pretty mentally tough. They’re not going to let that stuff get to them,” said Thornton Coach Bob Davies.

Thornton, which plays in the South, is 4-0 despite playing almost the entire season without injured all-state forward David Keohan. Cheverus, which had won three straight, dipped to 3-4.
