Amazing play to end the game.
Margin never exceeded 7 points in this one. North ahead early, South rallied, North took a two point lead into the fourth. South found a way to win.
Lots of big plays and drama, including a South player calling a late timeout that the Dragons didn't have, resulting in a technical foul that helped North rally late to tie the game at 60.
The two all-region players on the floor - Devin Young of South Oldham and Justin Rose of North - delighted the crowd with 33 points (Young) and 24 (Rose). Both gave all-region performances in the fourth quarter, when Rose had 13 of his points and Young had 12 - including the game ending dagger.
IF they played 100 times, these two might just split it evenly at 50 wins apiece.
Both teams with a lot of seniors on their rosters; and seniors just don't like to lose as 8th Region Warrior is fond of noting.
North seniors go down as the winningest group of seniors at the school over a 4 year period.
South earns another crack at Oldham County in the district finals on Friday at about 7:45 pm.
Kudos to Steve Simpson on earning a trip to New Castle!
