Andover wins thrilling OT game on a last second shot!
Brimmer jumped out to a first-half lead behind an inspired defense effort but Andover found their offensive rhythm in the second-half. Dallion Johnson delivered some late game heroics, drilling a pair of threes and what looked like it would be the game winning 8 foot runner but Jordan Minor had other ideas as his put-back forced overtime. The game remained tied with just 30 seconds left in OT before Kyrell Luc delivered the old-fashioned three-point play, converting a double-clutched lay-up and being fouled. Andover still wouldn't go away though and they had one final possession. Johnson had the ball with time ticking away but Brimmer sent two defenders to get it out of his hands. He found Matteo Whelton in the corner who launched a three just as time expired. The ball swished through the net and gave Andover the dramatic win. Johnson finished with a team high 23 while Brenton Mills finished with 15 and Whelton 11.
