The Cardinals boys basketball team was just 1-6 going into last night's game against Staples, but Big Red's Conor Harkins stepped up big time in this FCIAC matchup. 

Harkins steals the ball from Staples and throws it up- it hits off the rim but Griffin Golden has his back and puts it back up for two. Later in the first, Wrecker Nick Esposito goes up with this shot…. and one. He makes the foul shot and the first quarter ends tied at 13. 

Greenwich pulls ahead in the second quarter.  Here it's Harkins with a 3 putting the Cardinals up by 3. and then another one by Golden… Greenwich up by 10 at the half. 

Staples goes on an 8-0 run to start the third. They make basket… after basket… after basket and lead 37-35 going into the fourth. 

The Wreckers and Cardinals battle it out until the end. Here Staples takes the lead, but Greenwich responds  with this put back to tie things up with just under a minute to play. 

Then Staples makes the mistake of fouling Harkins in three point range with just 15 seconds left. The sophomore guard made all three shots… and Greenwich edges Staples 50-47 for the Cardinals first FCIAC win of the season. 

Coming up this week, the Greenwich wrestling team will take on defending state champ Danbury High School at home, the Westhill hockey team will travel to play Greenwich, and the Cardinals swim team will host Staples.
