The new season got off to a great start for the Bishop Lynch Friars, who bounced back from a sluggish first half to dominate Cistercian over the final two quarters for a 54-46 win.

The Friars (1-0) trailed 29-17 at intermission, struggling to find the bottom of the bucket during the first two periods. However, Kyle May's squad found a spark in the second half in the form of junior Nick Freis, who led all scorers with 20 points and was a perfect 5-of-5 from the free throw line

Sophomores Zach McManus and Josh Garza scored eight and seven points, respectively, with Garza pulling down many critical rebounds. Another sophomore — Cameron Wassell — went 4-of-4 from the charity stripe in the final moments to seal the deal.

Bishop Lynch's high-pressure style wore down the Hawks in the second half, limiting Cistercian to just 17 points over the final two quarters.

The junior varsity steamrolled Cistercian behind freshman Zach Muller's 29 points. Muller hit six shots from downtown in leading BL to a 66-43 win. Sophomores Grayson Timmins (13) and Jack Adams (11) combined for another 24 points.

The varsity will return to action Saturday evening, as the Friars host St. Mark's at 7 p.m. The junior varsity will play on the road next Tuesday against Greenhill at 5 p.m.
