When Malden Catholic and St. John’s Prep played in Danvers Jan. 6, the No. 5 Eagles won in a rout, 90-49.
Last night in Malden it was a completely different story. The Lancers upset the Eagles, 72-71, on a last-second shot by junior Kyle Sangster, who scored all of his 16 points in the second half.
The Lancers trailed all game until Sangster’s leaner in the lane with four seconds remaining.
