Minco fights through late OCA surge to claim title

(Continued)

AMBER —

Baade and Schneberger combined for 10 points to start the third quarter for Minco and take the lead to 16. A three from Jones piled on the points, as the Eagles struggled defensively. They scored 11 on one end, but the Bulldogs doubled them up on the other to exit the fourth quarter 53-35 ahead.

Then came the rejuvenated Eagles that had risen in the previous two games to get to this point. Kingsley showed his range was just about everywhere when he started hitting quarter-court shots as if he’d been born out there. From a deficit of more than 20 points, OCA got back within nine to set up a nervous few minutes. This time, however, the gap was just too big.

"[Kingsley] can shoot the basketball; he really pulled a couple out of his sock there," a relieved Duvall said. "These kids, they fight from start to finish. We watched them; they came back and won twice, and I told them they've got some more to go."

The big win gives Minco their second Grady County title in three years.
