ANDOVER — The game’s final play was one for the highlight reels, as Haverhill superstar sophomore Noah Vonleh jumped for an airball and, in one motion, slammed it home just before time expired. For the rest of the contest, however, Andover found the formula to keep the star silent in a 59-50 Golden Warriors victory last night. “They did a very good job on Noah,” said Hillies coach Mike Trovato. “He’ll have to learn how to adjust when teams are throwing all sorts of different things at him. He got into foul trouble, and that hurt him too. But It was a learning experience.” With Syracuse basketball associate head coach Bernie Fine in attendance, the Golden Warriors limited Vonleh — the No. 26-ranked sophomore in the country — to six points, all in the second half. “When you are facing a player that is one of the top players in the nation, he can go off at any time,” said Andover head coach David Fazio. “So we played smart defense. We did all we could to keep him out of the paint, and got the ball out of his hands.” James Costello, a 6-foot-2 junior, drew much of the duty guarding the 6-foot-7 Vonleh, with help including 6-foot-4 sophomore Sam Dowden. “Costello did a heck of a job,” said senior co-captain Joe Bramanti. “And we would collapse and help. We thought we had a good plan, and got off to a good start.” Vonleh was forced to the bench approximately five minutes into the contest, when he was whistled for his third foul of the game, two on charging calls. He did not play the entire second quarter. “We wanted to collapse on him,” said Dowden, who outscored his fellow sophomore with 15 points. “We forced him to the baseline and kept him off the glass.” Vonleh, who just received an offer from Pittsburgh, finally broke through with the first basket of the second half, and did manage a pair of impressive blocks. “He is still a 15-year-old and that was a very good team,” said Trovato. “And losing a whole quarter is tough. But it was still a four-point game going into the fourth quarter.” The Golden Warriors held just a 42-38 lead through three quarters, but opened the final frame on a 11-0 run. Bramanti had a pair of hoops and Brian Salvesen hit for all six of his points during the surge. “That was huge,” said Bramanti. “We built up a nice lead, and that allowed us to do what we wanted to do on the court. We felt more comfortable.” Andover never allowed the lead to drop below nine after that point. Bramanti scored a game-high 22 points, including a 3-pointer from NBA range, and Craig Luschenat added nine for the winners. The Hillies found some luck from the 3-point line, hitting 10 treys. Edwin Valentin hit three 3-pointers on his way to a team-high 12 points and Shain Roche also sunk three from behind the arc. “We played smarter on defense than we did on Saturday,” said Fazio. “But we have to play cleaner basketball. We have to remember you don’t get extra points for looking cool.”
