Braves suffer tough overtime loss against MVC
December 21, 2022
Mount Vernon Christian played well but needed an almost miracle to edge La Conner 65-61 in boys' hoops action at their home court Saturday.
The Braves (3-5) had seemingly won the game when Isa Gonzales-Rojas sank two of three free throw attempts for a 56-55 lead with two seconds remaining in regulation. He had been fouled on a desperation three-point heave from midcourt.
The winds of fortune then shifted in favor of the Hurricanes.
Referees nixed the second of Gonzales-Rojas' made free throws by whistling La Conner for a lane violation, sending the contest into overtime tied at 55-55.
