Future Blue Devil David McClure and the Trinity Catholic Crusaders haven't been challenged for a long time. That changed in the FCIAC conference championship game; luckily McClure was up to the challenge.
The Crusaders quickly found themselves in a battle against Bridgeport Central for the league title. After cruising through much of the season, the Crusaders needed each of David McClure
's 24 points and 11 rebounds to squeak out with a 61-59 victory.
McClure, who had been a bit quiet with his scoring in the first few rounds of the tournament, sparked the Crusaders and the crowd with a pair of rim shaking jams and a good showing from the perimeter where he hit 2-of-3 long range attempts.
Trinity Catholic has now won 47 consecutive contests, including a 23-0 record this season. Next up is the Connecticut state tournament.
