FARGO -- Much to coach Gregg Grinsteinner's chagrin, the Dickinson Trinity boys basketball team again failed to close out a game.
Fargo Shanley retook the lead late and held on for a 57-52 victory on Saturday afternoon. It was the Titans' first game against a Class A opponent this decade.
"I like their energy, I like the effort, but it's a matter of us closing the door," Grinsteinner said. "We had a chance to close the door and we didn't. It was a good experience for our kids."
Mike Schmidt hit five of the Deacons' nine 3-pointers and sparked the late run. Schmidt finished with 21 points and seven rebounds.
Jonathon Ficek led the Titans (5-2) with 12 points and nine rebounds. Robbie Morey added 10 points, five assists and three steals. Matt Klug added 11 points.
"We saw some different looks out of Shanley today that are going to make us better down the road," Grinsteinner said.
Shanley has an enrollment of 304 while Trinity has 173.
