KAMIAKIN 47, LYNDEN 46: Koby Bailey hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 10 seconds remaining to rally the Braves past the Lions at the SunDome Shootout in Yakima.
“We were ahead at halftime (28-20), but we were down four with a minute and a half left,” Kamiakin coach Brian Meneely said. “Our seniors made some big plays for us and Garrett Paxton took two big charges for us.”
The Lions went on a 17-8 run in the third quarter to take a 37-36 lead, and held a slim lead until the final minute.
Isaiah Brimmer made a big basket to pull Kamiakin (5-2) within a point, then Bailey hit the bucket of the night for the win.
“We are getting our legs back,” Meneely said. “We are plugging away. It’s a long year and we want to be playing well at the right time.”
Brimmer led Kamiakin with 13 points, while Champ Grayson added 11 points, four assists and two steals.
Clayton Whitman led Lyden with 17 points.
The Braves are back in action Friday against Black Hills at 4:30 p.m.
