Northport gets first win on buzzer-beater…
Northport put one in the win column Tuesday night after edging Curlew with late game heroics and a come-from-behind win 35-33.
The Mustangs spotted their hosts a 10-point lead after the first quarter, but managed to get back into the game, getting the lead down to six by the half. Northport still entered the final frame down by eight, but kept the pressure on the Cougars and trailing by just one in the final seconds. That’s when Tanner Malcolm heaved up a prayer that was answered in the form of a winning buzzer beating shot from half-court to win the game by two for the Mustangs (1-4, 1-2).
Malcolm finished with 11 on the night and Teammates Jacob Corcoran and Joey Beardslee had 7 apiece in the win.
