Andover outlasts Eisenhower in top five battle

For part of the second half, it seemed that Goddard Eisenhower would be able to do what no team has been able to all season long, beat the Andover Trojans. The Tigers were down double digits at one point but were able to get the lead to three before Andover secured the win, 75-65.

The fast pace start to the game seemed to fit both teams as the Tigers and the Trojans traded baskets for most of the first half. Transition points were in abundance for the Trojans who found success from three-point range on numerous fast break occasions.

Jack Johnson was the leading scorer for the Trojans finishing with 20 points, followed by Harper Jonas with 17 and Isaiah Maikori with 16.

Eisenhower guard Jordan Vincent was the main source of offense for the Tigers over their stretch to cut the Andover lead. The senior was able to get to the lane with ease and absorb contact in tough situations finishing with a game high 34 points.

Andover advances to 14-0 on the season. The Trojans continue to build on the best record the team has seen since any of its current players have been in high school.

Andover is scheduled to travel to Goddard next, while Eisenhower will face off with Andover Central.
