Maple River Takes Valley Showcase From MCW In 2OT

Posted: Updated:

5th ranked Maple River took on Martin County West in the Valley Conference Showcase finale on Saturday and it was a barnburner.  It would go to double overtime tied at 53.  The Eagles took the first lead with a Zach Krengel layin, but the Mavericks would go in front on a three from Mitchell Sitzmann.  Maple River answered with a jumper in the lane from Michael Lewis, and push the lead to three with free throws.  Sitzmann would answer again with a three to tie it at 62, but Josiah Breiter would get fouled with 1.7 seconds left and make one of two free throws to put Maple River back in front.  Martin County West would get one last shot, but Austin Krumweide's desperation heave would only catch glass, as Maple River gets by 63-62.
