Road Warriors: Merrimack women win 3rd straight

Merrimack: Men rally, but drop second straight

(Continued)

Merrimack freshman shines in defeat

NORTH ANDOVER — After cutting a second-half deficit from 13 points to just three with seconds to play, the Merrimack men’s basketball team nearly completed an incredible rally to tie the game, but rookie guard Gelvis Salano just missed on a potential buzzer-beating, game-tying 3-pointer, as the Warriors fell, 79-76, to Concordia in their home opener yesterday at Hammel Court.

Losers of back-to-back games, the Warriors see their overall record stand at an even 2-2 after the defeat, while the previously winless Clippers improve to 1-3 by means of the victory.

Down by eight with 20 seconds to play, Solano trimmed the deficit to five by means of his career-high fifth 3-pointer of the match, a basket that came roughly 30 seconds after another made 3-ball from the freshman.

Solano finished the game with a career-high 22 points while going 5 for 9 from downtown and 7 for 16 overall. The rookie also dished four assists and came up with a team-high two steals.

Clifford, meanwhile, notched his third double-double of the young season by means of a 22-point, 10-rebound output, and finally, senior Tyler Young rounded out the trio of Merrimack double-digit scorers with an 11-point performance on 5-of-14 shooting.

The visitors, however, were paced by a quartet of double-digit scorers.
