CLEAR SPRING -- The Clear Spring Blazers turned their offense up an extra notch during the four-minute overtime period, outscoring Berkeley Springs 16-9 to take a 79-72 victory over the Indians in boys basketball action Friday night.
"I thought it would come down to who executed late," Clear Spring coach Mark Shives said. "We came out with high intensity and emotion during the overtime period. Part of that was due to the senior leadership. It was a good atmosphere out there tonight."
After trading baskets to open the overtime period, the Blazers (10-8) went on an 8-1 run -- with center Cody Englehart scoring all eight points -- to take the lead for good at 73-66 with 1:49 remaining in the overtime period.
"I thought it was a good game," Shives added. "Berkeley Springs shot the lights out. Every time we got up, they shot their way back in it."
