Trailing 54-46 with 54 seconds left, the Trojans went on a 10-1 run to close out the game. A pair of free throws by Wyatt Suter with 15.1 seconds to go proved to be the difference in a 56-55 Barnesville victory in the big red gym at Willmar High School.

“Everything but one minute was great tonight,” Bluejays head coach Ted Taatjes said. “It’s hard, it’s hard to swallow. I told the kid that the season isn’t over or anything like that, but we have to start learning from those situations.”

CMCS took an eight-point lead into the final minute on a layup by Braelin Rime. Barnesville’s Zachary Bredman drilled a fadeaway jumper, only for Rime to rebound and hit one of two free throws in his own end.

Bredman responded with a 3-pointer to make it 55-51 with 27 seconds left. On the inbounds pass, CMCS was called for a foul, giving the ball back to the Trojans. They answered with an Owen Riddle 3-pointer to make it a one-point game with 24 seconds left.

The Bluejays’ inbounds pass was deflected and ended up in Suter’s hands. He drew the foul in the paint, setting the stage for the game-winning free throws. Suter finished with a team-high 15 points.

Boosting the last play, the Bluejays couldn’t get the final down in time after a punt.

“We had a nice set where Bulthuis had to take a screen from Harrington for a nice open three up top,” Taatjes said. “They did a good job covering it. We hit the slide to Ryan and he got a little body and threw it and the rest is history. It’s hard when you don’t take a look at the end. We got what we wanted, but we didn’t execute it well. And that’s it.”
