Season sweep of Bengals for Horde

T he Granville Golden Horde took the season series from the Tamarac Bengals on Jan. 19 in a 66-59 double overtime thriller.

With four regular starters out of the lineup, defeating the Bengals seemed like a long shot, but two players stepped up to bring home the win as Granville seeks .500 in the Wasaren League.

Tim Perry hit a clutch shot to force a second overtime and Evan Young put the Bengals away, scoring Granville’s only points of the double overtime period.

Despite trailing by double digits in both halves of play, Granville pulled even and had to go to an overtime period when the last-second winning shot failed to fall.

Tamarac did itself no favors as in the final seconds of the first overtime as a player fouled Jamie Hicks in the process of shooting a game-tying three-pointer. Compounding the issue the player argued the call and received a technical foul handing Granville five shots from the line. All alone at the line Hicks, however, managed just one of the five shots and Granville remained down by two points. Thanks to the technical Granville had possession and 11.2 seconds left to work with. As the clock dwindled, Perry fired up a game-tying two-point shot to force double overtime.

During the heavily defensive second overtime Young stepped up and broke the scoring open with six of his team high 17 points to deliver the win. In addition to leading the team in scoring, Young added four rebounds and four assists.

Joining Young scoring in double digits were Jared Beattie with a 14-point, 12-rebound double double; Hicks had another solid night with 10 points, five rebounds and five assists. Perry had 12 points, eight rebounds and three blocks. 

Sam McDermott had seven points, five rebounds, four assists and five steals.

Coaches said Kyle Rathbun, once again, played lockdown defense on the Bengals’ best shooter.
