PARK HILLS —The fourth quarter of the boys consolation game boiled down to a contest which team could make the most threes in the quarter. The Arcadia Valley Tigers won the contest and the game as they made just enough to stay out of reach of a last shot by the Potosi Trojans for a 60-59 win.
Jeremy Malugen swished the net from downtown for Potosi as the final buzzer sounded, but with no foul being made on the play, the Trojans came up one point short. The two teams combined for nine threes in the quarter with the Tigers holding a one-shot edge.
The winning point proved to be scored on the back end of a pair of free throws by Eric Bennett which put the Tigers up by four. Arcadia Valley made five of their last six free throws. Bennett’s free throws gave him 12 points in the game.
Both Malugen and Zack Adams made three threes for the Trojans in a game that had eight lead changes and four ties, and they both scored 13 points. Kyle Sutton scored three threes for Arcadia Valley to finish with 11 points.
Even with 15 threes being scored between the two teams, Jeremiah Robinson led both teams in scoring 16 points without one three-pointer. Robinson slashed inside for lay-ups and also handled the back door for rebounds and consequent putbacks to score 14 of his 16 in the first two quarters.
Arcadia Valley (8-14) will play at Central on Tuesday, and Potosi (1-21) will travel to Caledonia on Monday to play the Kingston Cougars in the Washington ‘Hog Games’.
