MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Dave Theis had 18 points to lead Mercersburg Academy to a 43-41 victory over St. Maria Goretti on Wednesday.

Kyle Roy hit two free throws with 10 seconds left to give the Blue Storm (2-0) a five-point lead and seal the win. Goretti's Kevin Breslin hit a 3-pointer in the final seconds for the final margin.

Breslin led all scorers with 22 points. John Duhring added eight points and seven rebounds and Logan Bolinger had three steals and three assists for the Gaels (1-2).
