Elkton came to Rutland confident in their abilities. Coach Malcomb had another plan. Seniors dominated the Elkton roster. Their size, speed and experience seemed to seal the Raiders’ fate before the jump ball. The ORR crowd was pleasantly surprised starting right away in the first quarter as the Raiders opened up a lead on Elkton. The score was close the entire game with ORR ahead for most of it. Coach Malcomb’s stress grew towards the end of the game. Regulation time ended with the score tied. It came down to free throws. The Raiders couldn’t seal the win. The game continued to a second OT. The crowd held their breath as the fouls added up and then erupted into celebration as the final buzzer blew.
