Alcester-Hudson Boys Drop Heartbreaker to Beresford

The Alcester-Hudson Cubs lost a heartbreaker to the Beresford Watchdogs on Saturday, February 3rd.  A made free throw with just a half second left in the game was the difference as the Watchdogs took the win 52-51.

Beresford seemed to be headed down an easy path to their fourth straight win after the first two quarters of play.  The Watchdogs led 14-10 at the end of the first quarter and then extended their lead to 32-21 by halftime.  Things then started to change for the Cubs.

Alcester-Hudson chipped away at the lead in the third quarter and shrunk the lead to 45-40 going into the fourth quarter.  The Cubs cut the lead to 47-46 with about 6:30 to play in the game.  The score remained 47-46 for almost the next four minutes.  Alcester-Hudson broke the scoring drought by both teams with a basket to take a 48-47 lead with 2:40 to go.  Aidan Hamm put the Watchdogs back in front 50-48 after a three-point shot with 1:15 remaining.  Hamm made one of two free throws with :21 on the clock to give the Watchdogs a 51-48 advantage.  Dominic Van Egdom tied the game with a three-point basket with :05.7 left.

James took the inbound pass after a timeout and sprinted down the court.  He leaped towards the hoop on a lay-up attempt as Van Egdom tried to slide in and take the charge.  A blocking foul was called with :00.5 to go putting James on the free-throw line for the game-winning free throw.

Van Egdom finished with 24 points.  Jose Topete-Lopez added 10 points.  Mateo Kleinhans had eight points.  William Hallaway, Ethan Bovill, and Evan Haak all had three points each.
