Comments () A Text Size

BROCK — Brady Anderson sank two free throws with 3.4 seconds left Tuesday to push the No. 4 Ponder boys past the state’s top-ranked Class 2A team, Brock, 49-48.

Anderson put the Lions (20-7, 6-1 District 9-2A) ahead with a basket with about 40 seconds remaining, but the Eagles promptly returned the favor. Anderson was then fouled on a drive to the hoop that put him on the free-throw line, where Ponder went 11-for-13 in the game.

Clay Morgan and Josh Peterson each finished with 10 points for the Lions, who play at home against Millsap at 7:45 p.m. Friday.
