Whittier surges past Pentucket

(Continued)

But, trailing 41-37, the Wildcats took charge midway through the final period.

At 5:36, a Ryan 3-pointer tied the game at 46-all, and another Grant trifecta gave Whittier its first lead since the early moments of the third. A McNamara 3-pointer pushed the Sachems back up by one, 49-48, but that would be Pentucket's last lead of the season.

Whittier's Ryan hit his fourth 3-pointer and nine late free throws turned the tide for good.

The No. 6-seed Wildcats advanced to the quarterfinals Friday at No. 3 Bedford.
