Campbell River’s Timberline beats Highland in OT

Wolves came back from slow start to win at home

It looked like the Timberline Wolves’ hopes for the comeback win Tuesday night might be thwarted.

In the end though, they held off the visitors, Comox’s Highland Raiders, but it took five minutes of overtime from coach Gord Hay’s boys to secure the win in AA basketball action.

The Wolves dug themselves into a hole early in the game, as they trailed after one quarter 19-7, but they managed to narrow the lead at the half 35-27.

After the break, Timberline started out slowly, giving away too many turnovers, but the team began to take over as the third quarter wore on, even grabbing a lead late. Highland fought back though hitting a buzzer beater to take a three-point lead.

Momentum stayed with the Wolves, as they pushed ahead for a lead late in the game, but once again Highland fought back to knot things up and force the game into overtime. Timberline owned the extra five minutes, jumping out to the all-important lead and holding on for an 81-75 win.

Top scorers for the Wolves were Nathan Lagos with 26 points, Brodie Comerford with 22 and Dylan Christiansen with 20 points.
