    BOYS BASKETBALL

    Galax 84, Narrows 81

    Galax was taken to extra play twice by key shots from Narrows, but survived one of its toughest road games of the year Friday, finally winning 84-81 in double overtime.

    David Thompson’s bucket for the Green Wave (6-7 overall, 1-2 district) with eight seconds left in regulation sent the two teams into overtime tied at 64-64, and Derrick Reed nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer to knot the score at 74 apiece at the end of the first overtime.

    Galax (8-3, 2-0) outscored Narrows 10-7 in the second OT to pull off the win.

  • Tide downs Warriors in double OT

    Galax had better hope the VHSL doesn’t get wind of this. With all the extra basketball the Maroon Tide has been playing recently, the suits in Charlottesville may think the Tide is trying to sneak in a free scrimmage.

    Playing its second double-overtime game in as many outings, Galax rallied from 13 points down in the fourth quarter and survived a miserable night at both the foul line and the 3-point arc to knock off Oak Hill Academy’s Red team 71-69.
