Shocker in Washougal
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
The Washougal Panthers hosted their first district playoff game Saturday, but Brad Wallace and the River Ridge Hawks spoiled the party.
Wallace delivered 25 of his 30 points in the second half to lead the Hawks to a 54-51 victory in front of a packed house at Washougal High School. He also nailed the game-winning 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left on the clock. All the Panthers had time for was a desperation shot that deflected off the glass as the final buzzer sounded.
"That kid just hit an incredible shot with a hand in his face," said head coach Malcolm Estes. "We played hard. The breaks just didn't fall our way in the end."
