FERRIDAY — Matthew Freeman scored 13 of his game-high 23 points in the pivotal third quarter to lead the Trinity Episcopal Saints to a 61-49 win over the Huntington Hounds Monday night.

The game was close throughout the first half, which saw Trinity (3-2) take a 30-25 lead at the break. Led by Freeman’s play near the basket, the Saints outscored Huntington 19-7 in the third quarter for a 49-32 lead.

“Matthew worked us over inside. He made a lot of baskets inside,” Hounds head coach David Boydstun said. “We didn’t guard the post players real well. We didn’t do a good job rebounding.”

Brandon Daggs had his best game of the young season for Trinity as he finished with 18 points. Tyler Pere scored 21 points and Chuck Bowie added 12 points for Huntington (2-4).

“They’ve got a good ball club this year. They’ve got most of their players back from last season,” Boydstun said. “They’ve got a lot of experience.”
