Oakesdale takes district in O.T.
February 27, 2020
Was it the only open shot of the fourth quarter?
It wasn't even the fourth quarter anymore, it was overtime.
In a fierce fight in Walla Walla Friday night, Feb. 21, Oakesdale's Tyler Bober caught a pass in the rarity of open space – on the wing, under a minute left, in front of the Oakesdale crowd. The junior guard took the shot.
All net, it decided the game, after a defensive stop, 47-43 Oakesdale, for the Nighthawks' second consecutive District Nine 1B championship – finishing a three-game sequence with Garfield/Palouse this year which went to the last possession each time.
