A game that was tied with under two minutes left did not turn out in Axtell’s favor as Southern Valley topped the Cats 43-39 on February 15 at Axtell. It was the final home game for seniors Tanner Badura, Creighton Kring and Lane Bertrand as they and the rest of the Cats head into postseason play at 11-11.
The first quarter was favorable for Axtell—10-5 lead—but in the second quarter the Cats struggled offensively as Southern Valley had an 11-3 advantage for a halftime lead of 16-13.
Axtell fell behind by nine, 15-24, at one point in the third period but fought back late thanks to a bucket and two FTs by Zach Hinrichs and a two-pointer and a buzzer-beating, banked-in three-pointer by Brennan Runge. The Cats edged Southern Valley 14-12 and cut the Eagles lead to 28-27 by the end of the third.
