Wolsey-Wessington 44, Sanborn Central-Woonsocket 43
WOLSEY - The only thing that could have made the game between Wolsey-Wessington and Sanborn Central-Woonsocket any better on Saturday is if the game would have gone into overtime, but Warbirds sophomore center Payson Gohn wasn’t having that, cooly sinking a game-winning free throw with less than 10 seconds left in the game to give the Warbirds the big 281 Conference victory, 44-43.
The Warbirds grabbed a 26-17 lead at half, but Sanborn Central-Woonsocket came storming back to take a one-point lead at the end of three quarters, 37-36. That set up a tremendous fourth quarter that ended with Gohn taking a pass underneath the Warbird basket, putting in a short basket and getting fouled on the play. He calmly sunk the free throw, and Wolsey had a one-point win.
Gohn was the only Wolsey-Wessington player in double-figures scoring, as he bucketed 11 points on the night. Brevan Hooks secured ten rebounds on the night to go with nine points and seven assists for the Warbirds, who move to 14-1 on the season with the victory.
The loss is the Blackhawks’ fourth in a row, dropping them to 7-8 on the season. Sanborn Central-Woonsocket hosts Iroquois/Doland on Tuesday in Woonsocket.
