The Fivay boys basketball program earned its first win  Saturday with a 34-32 victory over River Ridge. Making the win even more impressive? The Falcons had five only players at their disposal.

Fivay took advantage of a trio of 3-pointers in the closing seconds  of the first three quarters. D.J. Brindley hit a trey as the first quarter ended, and Steven Wetzel hit one  at the halftime buzzer. Brindley hoisted  a last-second 3 at the end of the third quarter to spur the Falcons to victory.

Joe Ross led Fivay  with 10 points, Anthony Perkins was the team’s rebounding leader, and Brandon Edwards had a key fourth-quarter block.

Fivay, a first-year school with no seniors and three juniors, lost 20 straight games to open the season.
