Top-seeded Edmeston boys fall in OT in Class D semifinals


The ensuing inbound went to Vibbard, who was guarded closely by Clark. Vibbard drew contact as he looked for a shot, but there was no call. Vibbard’s three-point attempt from the left missed badly.

“We needed three stops at the end of regulation and got them,” Frisbie said.

To start overtime, Vibbard and Ben Malone traded putbacks in the first 25 seconds. The Panthers then went on a 6-0 spurt.

Brandon Fallon started it with a three-point play. He rebounded a miss by Vibbard, made the shot and was fouled. His free throw with 3:28 to go made it 53-50. Kyle King then got a friendly roll on a pull-up jumper in the lane to extend Edmeston’s lead to five with three minutes left.

After Stebbins missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 2:41 left, Clayton Lyon made 1 of 2 free throws with 2:34 to go to make it 56-50.

“It’s tough, especially being up six in overtime,” Belden said of he loss. “We were down for three-quarters of the game and forced overtime, and had still had a chance to win. That’s what these guys do.”

Clark quickly halved the Chiefs’ deficit, receiving a kick-out pass before hitting a three-pointer with 2:20 to go.

Schneider then scored inside after receiving an entry pass from Miller to make it 56-55 with 1:25 showing on the clock.

Vibbard then made a strong drive to the basket but couldn’t get the layup to fall with one minute left. SC pushed it up quickly. Miller made a quick cut down the lane, received a pass and hit a layup with 50 seconds left to give SC 57-56 lead.

“I didn’t have a good shooting day, but the one thing I thought I did well was moving without the ball,” said Miller, who finished 6-for-22 from the floor. “When I saw it was on the wing, I just cut to the basket.”
