Statler’s game-winner sinks Polytech

WOODSIDE, Del. – Sussex Central erased a 6-point deficit in the closing minutes Friday night, downing Polytech 52-49 in Woodside.

The Golden Knights corralled the rebound and scored a bucket off of back-to-back missed free throws in the final two minutes. Those plays set up a tying lay-in by Trent Fonville.

The Knights held the ball for the final possession. Garrett Statler received the ball on the elbow with seconds remaining, knocking down a 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded, giving Central their third-straight win.

Central (3-1) will host Cape Henlopen Tuesday, while the Panthers (1-3) will host Dover.
