Drane drains FTs to lift Seven Hills

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Two free throws by Matt Drane with 12 seconds remaining gave Seven Hills Stingers a 48-47 victory over the North College Hill Trojans Tuesday at NCH.

        The victory enabled the Stingers to remain in a first place tie with St. Bernard in the Miami Valley Conference (11-2) with three games remaining. NCH dropped into second place, one off the pace.
