    After being down 14-3 after the 1st quarter on the road, the Trojans fought back within 7 at the half down 30-23.  Northwestern and Lancaster went toe to toe like a boxing match in the second half, but the Trojans hit some key free throws and key stops to escape the Bruins 61-58.  Leading scorers for the Trojans were Qua Allison with 15, AJ Thompson with 14, Dwight Priest 11, Cari Caldwell had 9, Mason Grigg with 6, Jalen Burnett with 4, and Matthew White with 2.  The Varsity boys go to 2-0 on the season and face Spartanburg at home on Friday.
