Thunder Mountain junior Ashley Young scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in a 37-34 loss in the Atigun Inc./Powerade Kenai River Challenge on Thursday night at Kenai Central High School.
“We had a shot at a game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer,” Thunder Mountain coach Tanya Nizich said. “It was a close shot but rolled out.”
With 16 seconds left the Falcons trailed by three. Cheyenne Ekis made a steal and scored and TMHS called a time out to set up in man defense.
Kenai snuck a long pass over the defenders to take a three-point advantage with 10 seconds remaining.
