Zach Meyer made two free throws with 18 seconds remaining to preserve a 47-44 boys varsity basketball victory over Parker Charter on Monday.
Parker got a good look at a 3-point attempt in the final seconds, but the shot didn’t go. Zach led the Eagles with 18 points, while Derrick Newberry added 11 points. He and Mike Lassalle anchored AMSA early when the Eagles struggled from the floor.
The Eagles have two more games this week, on Wednesday and Friday, both at home.
