The third time was the charm for Prairie's defense.

Mason Pack scored the last of his 24 points to put Prairie ahead 72-70 with eight seconds left. Ronnie McPherson grabbed the rebound of Bay's final shot and was fouled with 0.7 of a second left.

Bay's Tyler Barton, who led all scorers with 33 points, hit a 3-pointer at the end of regulation to send the game to overtime.

DeWayne Whitley hit a 3-pointer at the end of overtime to force a second extra period.

Prairie (3-2) played the overtimes without senior captain James Phillips, who rolled his ankle in the fourth quarter.

Bay fell to 1-4 in the 3A GSHL.
