Double-digit leads in both halves evaporated for Mt. Lake Area Friday night, allowing Adrian to force overtime and eventually claim a 68-65 win over the Wolverines at Adrian.
MLA led by seven at halftime after leading by as many as 12 in the first half. The Wolverines then pushed the lead back to 56-42 with nine minutes to go.
But Adrian caught fire from the field down the stretch, and was able to force overtime. In the overtime period, the Dragons outscored the Wolverines 8-5 for the win.
“We played well at times,” MLA Coach Shawn Naas said. “But we fouled too much and let them back in the game from the line in the first half. In the second half, our inexperience caught up with us. We had some turnovers and poor shot selection in the last four minutes and in overtime.
“We did have a good, open corner three-point try at the buzzer to force double-overtime. It looked good until it rattled on the rim.”
