CHELAN - Ephrata jumped to an early 20-11 first quarter lead as sophomore starter Dylan Jay for Chelan was benched with 3 quick fouls while guarding Ephrata’s Than Black who finished with a game high 34 including 12 in the first quarter.

Chelan battled back in the second quarter behind 8 points from Reed stamps while holding Ephrata to just six and took a 27-26 lead into half.

Chelan then built up a 10 point lead in the third quarter but saw that vanish during the fourth as Ephrata caught fire from outside and hit five three point shots.

Winston Roberts hit a buzzer beating three pointer at the end of regulation to force the overtime.

In the extra period Chelan took the lead with a Braiden Boyd offensive rebound put back and then a Nate Harding three point shot a few possessions later made it 77-73 with two minutes left.

Ephrata got a bucket and free throw from Hans Roberts to make it a 1 point game. Isaac Wilson then missed the front end of a 1 and 1 with 9 seconds left and Chelan survived a missed lay-up attempt from Ehphrata at the final buzzer.

“We started and finished a little slow tonight. But our second and third quarters were excellent as we outscored them 37-18 in those quarters. Quin McLaren’s dunk during that stretch really ignited us but once again were unable to keep them off the free throw line as they attempted 18 second half free throws which allowed them to catch up in the fourth quarter without the clock running.”
