Greenon began its comeback in the second quarter, outscoring the Lakers 21-15 but Indian Lake’s lead to five (32-27) at halftime.

“We started turning the ball over in the second quarter and Greenon took advantage of it,” said Indian Lake coach Tim McMahon. “We knew they would make a run, and they did.”

The Knights’ surge continued in the second half as they were able to tie the score at 43-43 after three quarters.

Greenon was three points better (14-11) in the final stanza to get the win.

“We were down one with about 20 seconds to go,” said McMahon. “We were called for a charging foul and then they made two free throws to go up three. We had a shot at the buzzer, but it didn’t go down.”
