night in their nip-and-tuck
matchup against Crook
Jacob Hernandez made
two big 3-pointers to draw
the Riverhawks to within one
point, and then the Cowboys
turned the ball over with 13
seconds left.
Down 67-66, TD head
coach Greg Cummings drew
up a play and Jaxon Pullen
had the ball in his hands and
dropped a reverse layup to
put the Hawks ahead.
Amid the celebratory
chaos, initially, time had run
out, but officials determined
that Crook County called a
timeout with 1.5 seconds in
The Cowboys tried to get
the ball in to their shooter for
a desperation heave, but lost

Nelson into the consolation
bracket, where he claimed

opponents, so their placing
was a nice thing for coach
Manciu to see from this
promising duo.
“Aiden and Ben had some

Manciu said.
Although they did not

Tackett (113), Angel Oregon

pins, an injury default and an
overtime triumph.
Tackett (11-8 record) start-

Blake Gohlmann (St Helens)
at the 5:57 mark, but then lost
in the quarterfinals versus
Sprague’s Bo Davis (23-7
record) by a 15-0 technical
fall after two rounds.
Settled in on the consola-
tion side, Tackett engaged in
an overtime thriller against
Liberty’s Emerald Koeppel.
Both wrestlers fought
to a 6-6 standstill through
six minutes of action, until
Tackett scored a takedown
and a nearfall to grab the
11-6 win.
As dramatic as that match
was, Tackett had to notch one
