A last-second overtime three-pointer by Grant Bentley handed Northmor a home come-from-behind victory over Fredericktown by a 56-54 score.

The Golden Knights trailed by a 14-13 margin after the first quarter in the Tuesday night game and Fredericktown extended their lead to a 20-16 score at the half. It was still 36-33 in favor of the Freddies after three periods of play, but Northmor rallied in the fourth quarter to tie things up at 47.

The game was closely contested in the extra period, but Northmor got the last shot to pull out the win.

Both Graesin Cass and Bentley finished with three three-pointers, with Cass totaling 15 points and Bentley scoring 12 — six in the extra session. Both Logan Mariotti and Max Lower contributed 10 points in the win.
