Tim Mould hit the only field goal in overtime and Worcester boys basketball teammate Jacob Grover made the only free throw in the extra period as the Wolverines edged host Franklin, 51-48, in the Tri-Valley League on Friday.
“It was basically a battle of attrition in overtime,” said Franklin coach Darryl Beers, whose team was outscored, 3-0, in the four-minute period. “Both teams battled so hard during regulation that everyone was tired. A lot of guys played a lot of minutes.”
Worcester trailed, 46-45, before Derek Pross hit a three-pointer with 10 seconds to go in regulation. Franklin’s Derek Beers then drove the lane and hit a short jumper to force overtime, where the Wolverines got a basket from Mould and made 1 of 8 foul shots for the win.
Devin Adams hit six threes and finished with a 18 points for Worcester, which received 16 points from Mould.
Beers scored a game-high 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Purple Devils (2-6, 1-5), who received 10 points from Matt D’Angelo.
