Barlow boys fall in double-overtime thriller
Bruins miss chances for the win at the end of regulation and the first overtime
6A BOYS BASKETBALL
Southridge pulled away in the final minute to down Barlow 59-53 in a double-overtime boys basketball game Tuesday night.
The Skyhawks gained the lead on Peyton Kings free throw with 1:09 to play and extended to a three-point margin when teammate Parker Gaddis knocked down a pair on the teams next trip down court.
Meanwhile, Barlow misfired on a series of 3s down the stretch and was held scoreless over the final 1:22. A final miss doomed the Bruins when King avoided defenders in the backcourt before launching a pass the length of the court for Mason Lewis, who converted a three-point play at the other end.
Barlow had a chance to end the game at the end of the first overtime but a pair of missed layups in the closing seconds kept the game tied.
Look for extended game coverage in the Friday, Dec. 19, print edition.
