GAME REWIND

A back-and-forth contest from start to finish, ultimately saw Sycamore outscore the Eagles 9-5 in overtime as the Aves knocked off Milford 51-47 on opening night. The Eagles had a chance to go ahead in the waning seconds when Steven Huxell got fouled with his team down one with two seconds remaining. The senior made the first toss, but missed the second and Cort Kramer nearly won the game with a desperation heave that just rimmed out. The overtime session saw the Eagles claw within two points before Ben Yuskewich got open behind the Milford D in the last seconds for a game-sealing lay-up.
