Who's shot was the biggest Tuesday night during the Rubber Chicken match when Ferris survived against Lewis and Clark in one of the more entertaining games during their long South Hill Rivalry and history of Chuck.

Was it the made free throw, his second of two attempts, by Connor Halliday tied the game and preciptated OT? Was it the putback of his own two missed free throws by Justin Stewart that tied the game in overtime when LC could have had the lead and the ball with  three minutes remaining?

You make the call. Our Washington Prep's filter is back - there's no excuse not to sign up and weigh in.

 

It possibly was Jason Bates' 3-pointer with 54 seconds to go in regulation that put the Saxons ahead 43-42 after the second of Austin Ehlo's 3-pointers had completed a rally from a 40-36 deficit with two minutes remaining putting LC ahead 42-40 with 1:07 to go.

Ferris led 13-8 on the scoring of Stewart. LC went up 22-19 on the scoring of Levi Taylor. The Saxons slowed things down and took a 36-27 lead on another Bates 3-pointer. Then Sean Hoffmann, back home after flying to Baltimore for a relative's funeral, scored six points in the fourth quarter and we had a ball game.

Central Valley's boys and girls avenged early season losses and salvaged splits of their season with wins at Mead.
