Henry Hart hit five 3-pointers, including a clutch long-range shot to provide breathing room early in the fourth quarter, and Waynflete pulled away to beat North Yarmouth Academy, 57-45, in a boys’ basketball game Wednesday night.
Hart finished with 21 points for the Flyers (4-4).
The first quarter featured five lead changes, and nine points from Hart allowed the Flyers to hold a 13-12 lead.
NYA (3-5) went ahead in the second quarter, but Waynflete turned up the defensive intensity, forced seven turnovers in the quarter and closed the half on a 9-2 run for a 26-21 advantage at the break.
After Joaquim Bila pulled the Panthers even early in the third quarter, a Matt Adey 3-pointer put the Flyers ahead to stay. Waynflete clung to a 36-33 lead going to the fourth quarter, and Hart’s final 3 sparked a game-ending 19-9 run.
