Pinecrest Academy’s boys nearly overcame both the absence of their top scorer and an early 10-0 deficit. The Paladins trailed Wesleyan by only one point in the closing seconds, but a handful of critical calls and a turnover helped the Wolves escape with a 48-45 victory on Friday at Pinecrest. The Paladins (2-2) played without junior forward Zach Guard, who is recovering from a knee injury.
