Concord trailed throughout the game but had fought back to tie it up on two Deshon Davis free throws with 2:22 remaining in the fourth quarter. Those were the last points until Snyder's game-winner. On the final possession, Snyder was unguarded with the ball about 12 feet from the basket, but he chose to pass it back out. He immediately received the ball back, turned and saw no one between him and the basket. He drove and calmly laid the ball in the hoop. Concord's last-second attempt fell short, and Brandywine moved to 7-2 on the season and earned bragging rights this year over the Raiders.
The game was played before an energized sellout crowd at Concord, with Brandywine bringing a large student section. After Snyder's field goal, the crowd jumped out of their seats, with many inches from the court as the Raiders' final attempt fell short.
The Bulldogs put Concord (6-5) in comeback mode early as they raced out to a 20-10 lead after the first quarter. Ra'Shawn Wright scored seven for Brandywine in the opening stanza. However, the offense went missing, as the Bulldogs put up just 21 combined points in the last three. The disappearing offense allowed the Raiders to climb back into the contest, which they did methodically. They cut the lead to seven at the half, five after the third and nearly completed the comeback at the end.
Davis led the Raiders with 14 points, and Jalen Thompson added nine. The loss continues a trend for Concord of close games. Other than a 17-point season-opening loss to Howard, the Raiders' largest margin of victory or defeat has been six points.
The high scorer for Brandywine was Jordan Johnson, who had 17. Wright finished with nine.
Brandywine is home Friday at 5:15 p.m. to take on Hodgson, while Concord travels to Appoqunimink Friday for a 5:45 p.m. tip.
