McCann Tech bench

The Hornets picked up win No. 1 of the 2021-22 season on Monday night at Duggan.

LENOX — A stop on the defensive end was all Shaler Larmon needed to send Greenfield packing on Monday afternoon.

The Millionaires kept the Green Wave off the scoreboard with a stop late in action and had one last shot. The game was tied at 53 with six seconds remaining. Brendan Armstrong picked up the inbounds roll near midcourt. Andrew McCormack came up to set a screen, and Armstrong used the window to fire a pass to Larmon in the left corner.

Larmon, a sophomore who had a team-high 16 points for Lenox, knocked down his second 3-point shot as time expired, lifting the Millionaires to the 56-53 win.

Lenox's defense found its rhythm early in the second half, holding Greenfield to just four points in the third quarter.

Armstrong scored 15 points for Lenox.

The win was the first of the year for the Millionaires (1-1), who will host Monument Mountain on Wednesday.
