Richey, Dufficy lift No. 8 Crusaders past Bernardians.BOYS' BASKETBALL: WHITINSVILLE CHRISTIAN 54, ST. BERNARD'S 49..By Steve Farley CORRESPONDENT..NORTHBRIDGE — While teams are still trying to figure out ways to stop Colin Richey, they’ll now have to keep an eye on Tim Dufficy. ..Dufficy, a transfer from Hopkinton, snapped a 49-49 tie with 2:09 to play by burying a 3-pointer. Richey, meanwhile, coolly sank two free throws with 8.7 seconds left to seal eighth-ranked Whitinsville Christian's 54-49 victory over St. Bernard’s. ..The Bernardians (5-3) trailed, 49-44, after 6-foot-5 junior forward Antonio Estrella drilled a jumper from the baseline with 4:41 left for the Crusaders (3-1). Sophomore guard Christian LaRoche responded by knocking down a 3 from the right elbow to cut the Crusaders’ lead to 49-47. ..After a defensive stop, 6-6 junior center Andrew Baron (team-high 13 points) tied it at 49-49, hitting a jumper from the right corner of the free-throw line with 2:27 left. But on WC’s next possession, Dufficy worked himself free and nailed a 3 from the baseline to put the Crusaders on top, 52-49. ..“We set a back screen on the guy in the low post,” said Dufficy, a junior who scored eight points. “I knew it was coming to me. I spotted up in the corner, and I hit it. I knew I was going to shoot the whole time, and I made it.” ..“He’s a shooter,” WC coach Jeff Bajema said. “I thought he hit a couple of big ones, but more importantly he played great defense against their leading scorer (John Crawley, 6 points).” ..The Bernardians, who only had two team fouls entering the late stages of the fourth quarter, were forced to foul to stop the clock and put WC at the line. ..Richey, who uncharacteristically missed all three of his free throws in the first half, hit two from the line to end any hopes of a St. Bernard’s rally. ..“I’ve been working on my free throws for a while,” said Richey, who scored a game-high 20 points. “I’m not afraid of the big shots at the big moments.” ..St. Bernard’s coach Mark Pierce was proud of his team’s effort. ..“(WC) is a veteran team, and we’re still a team that’s coming together and trying to get better every game,” Pierce said. “(Dufficy) hit that big shot, then we had to foul them four times to get to the one-and-one. We had our chances to win it in the last two minutes, but they hit their shots, and we didn’t.” ..ST. BERNARD’S.Name.FGM.3PM.FTM.Pts..Andrew Pierce. Crawley. Grenier. Maki. LaRoche. Hunt. Baron.
