By Brooklyn Thomas Posted February 16, 2010

After the loss the Lowry boy’s basketball team suffered against Sparks on Friday night, the team was ready to let off some steam on Saturday, February 6, against Fernley.

Fernley was the first to score, but the Bucks did not let that getaway. Lowry then took the ball back for two points to tie the game. Then Fernley went on a run of their own. The Bucks then got on to their own rally starting off with a three-point shot from David Eastman. The quarter finished 19-13, with Lowry in the lead.

“We had better ball movement we ran our offense better and played a little more intense on defense,” said junior Sterling Snow.

In the second quarter, the Bucks began to let loose and Fernley began to score as the teams stayed close the entire quarter. They went into the half down, 31-28.

The third quarter stayed intense as Lowry tried to get the lead back, but they were unsuccessful trailing by six at the start of the fourth.

In the fourth Lowry got the lead back with four minutes to go. Lowry kept it till an unnecessary foul was given tying the game, 56-56.

The teams then were forced into overtime. The tip went to Fernley but Anders Pace stole the ball and made a shot giving Lowry the lead. Lowry maintained that lead for the four minutes of play and went on to win 65-61.

“We knew we could pull it out,” said Snow.

The nights were very different, one difference from Friday to Saturday was “We Won,” yelled Terrell Messerly.

Lowry will be traveling to Yerington and Dayton for their last games of the regular season on February 12-13.
