In what was an astonishing game, the Knights pull of an unbelievable win in the last 90 seconds of the game. The first half was really of a poor quality with both teams guilty of silly decisions, many turnovers and poor shooting. By the middle of the game the Knights were trailing by a few points as Old Harbour took a lead. We seemed to be out of rhythm, tense and tired. In the third quarter, Old Harbour really looked the stronger of the sides as they produced a period of good runs. At one stage, they had a lead of 6 point. Coming up to the last quarter, the Georgians, though not at their best, stgcbasketballfreethrow2014clawed back to level the score at 50-50. The game was very close and with three minutes to go, the score was 54-52 in favor of the St. Catherine side. With the clock ticking down the Georgians launched a series of attack that seemed to send Old Harbour into a panic. They committed 3 crucial fouls which allowed the Knights to have a 58-57 lead with 3 seconds to go. At this stage, Old Harbour crumbled committing yet another offensive foul. STGC’s man-of-the-match Malik Jakson scored one of his two shoots to give the Knights a remarkable 59-57 win.
