Hillsboro Tigers Lose to Cochrane-Fountain City Pirates in OT
In W.I.A.A. division five boys’ basketball sectional semifinal action from last night, the Cochrane-Fountain City Pirates defeated the Hillsboro Tigers in overtime, 57-56. Hillsboro trailed by as many as 14 points in the second half before coming all the way back to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. The Tigers led by two in the final minute of regulation, but CFC’s Brody Halverson hit a three-pointer with ten seconds left to take the lead by one. With less than a second to go, Matt Anderson was fouled and went to the line to shoot the double bonus. He was able to make one of the two shots to send the game into overtime. In a back-and-forth battle, Max Stockwell scored the first nine points for Hillsboro in OT, while Cale Lisowski scored ten of his team-high 15 points for CFC.
