WESTPORT, Conn. The Westport Police Athletic League 7th-grade boys basketball team overcame a 10-point deficit with less than five minutes remaining to defeat St. Marys of Ridgefield, 56-53, in the Fairfield County Basketball League.
Westport improved to 12-6 overall and stands at 6-2 in the A Division of the league.

Kenny Brill, Ryan Fitton, Brendan Massoud and Fritz Schemel all added points during the frantic late fourth quarter rally.
Cayne Mandell and Matty Fair played key defensive roles, also helping to steady the squad with smart passes, assists and rebounds.
