REMSEN -- The Remsen St. Mary's boys changed their tune in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't fast enough to take back a win, falling 55-37 to Trinity Christian, Hull, Thursday.

"We struggled shooting, that's the bottom line," RSM boys' assistant coach Joe Schroeder said. "In the first half we shot 4-for-24."

After the first quarter, Trinity led 12-6. They stretched their lead to 27-10 by halftime.

"They (RSM) play hard on defense and they work hard, but they miss easy shots, then get frustrated and games get away from us," Schroeder said.

Trinity also out-rebounded RSM 33-20, he said.

In the second half, the Hawks picked up their scoring momentum, adding 11 points in the third quarter, but Trinity added 21 to widen the gap to 48-21.

RSM came alive in the fourth quarter, holding Trinity to seven points and scoring 18 for the Hawks.

"We started taking some shots," Schroeder said. "And we went into half-court press, and they turned the ball over quite a few times. We changed that up and had some success."

Leading scoring for RSM was junior Matt Wesselmann with 14 points. Senior Tyler Delperdang added another eight points for the Hawks.

RSM senior Nate Roder led in rebounds with nine boards.

The Hawks' record is now 3-3 for the season.
