Two big baskets from Trev Fiedler rescued George-Little Rock. Fiedler’s driving basket in the lane with 6.4 seconds remaining in overtime proved to be the game winner as the Mustangs edged Boyden-Hull 56-54 in a class 1A semifinal.
It was Fiedler who sent the game into overtime with a three pointer with just over a second remaining. He says they wanted to inbound it and have it thrown up the side to him or someone else for a three and that’s how it happened. "I’ve never hit a bigger shot than that in my life, it felt great," Fiedler says.
The the victory the Mustangs advance to Friday night’s class 1A championship contest. Fiedler says they’re looking forward to it, but it will be hard to come back and play with a lot of energy, but he thinks they can do that.
Boyden-Hull wanted to prevent Fiedler from even taking a shot at the end of regulation. The Comets had several fouls to give. Boyden-Hull coach Bill Francis says they discussed it in the timeout, foul a couple of times and get the clock to run down without them being able to get off a good shot. But Francis says someone blew an assignment.. The Comets were trying to make the championship game despite finishing the regular season with a record of 10-11.
Derrick Moss led the Comets with 21 points but fouled out with just over three minutes remaining in overtime. Fiedler paced the Mustangs with 21 points. It was George-Little Rock’s third victory over Boyden-Hull this season.
