Danny Harrick scored 26 points to lead all scorers and Connor Fisher scored 20 as the Canandaigua Braves needed double-overtime to hand visiting Mynderse their first loss of the season, 72-70.
Mynderse led 31-28 at halftime and by a score of 43-38 after three quarters but scored just 9 points in the final period of regulation allowing Canandaigua to force overtime. The Braves grabbed their first lead with 2:14 to go in regulation on a free throw from Harrick to complete a three point play.
In the first overtime Harrick opened with a three pointer but Quintin Battle matched him at the opposite end with a three of his own. Then it because a free throw shooting contest that neither team seemed willing to win culminating with a Mynderse possession with 14 seconds left after a Connor Fisher free throw tied it. Jesse Kabat’s three point attempt missed the mark and Darren Miller wasn’t able to score on the offensive rebounding resulting in a second overtime.
Canandaigua opened up an 8 point lead in the final extra period thanks to back-to-back Devin O’Dell layups. But, Mynderse wasn’t finished. Kabat hit a three to cut the lead to 68-63 and Kellen Caraher had a pair of scores off dribble-drives to cut the lead to 72-69.
Then, after Jack Ferris missed a pair of free throws, Mynderse had one last chance.
Canandaigua coach Charles DeTaeye decided to foul Mynderse rather than giving them an opportunity to tie the game with a three-pointer. Kellen Caraher went to the line with 4 seconds left, missed the first and made the second. Then, Canandaigua threw a long inbound pass that was intercepted by Caraher at mid-court and his last second running attempt from beyond the arc that would have won the game for the Blue Devils was just off the mark.
