Broncos Miss Miracle Three, Fall to Memorial

Alvirne nearly pulled off a miracle three to send the game to overtime but Sandi Purcell’s shot rimmed out as the Broncos fell to Manchester Memorial, 43-40.

Alvirne led 16-8 after the first quarter, but Memorial stormed back to tie the game before halftime. Down by three with two seconds left, the Broncos completed the full-court inbounds pass and got Purcell an open look. The missed shot prevented Alvirne from winning their ninth game of the season.

Purcell led Alvirne with 13 points, five rebounds and four asssits. Tori LaRoche added nine points and six rebounds while teammate Kaycee Carbone grabbed seven boards.
