Playing their final road game of the regular season, the Prescott Badgers came back to win at the very end, keeping their playoff hopes alive with a 56-53 win over the Flagstaff Eagles. It was the first time since 2005 that the Badgers have beaten the Eagles in Flagstaff.

Coach Travis Stedman, “We knew it would be a tough game. Flagstaff is an incredibly difficult place to play. Huge credit to our young men tonight. That’s a team victory through piles of adversity.”

Jake Hilton came off the bench to hit his biggest shot of the year, a three pointer from thLady Eagese corner as the final seconds ticked down. Milap Owens led the Badgers with 19, but it was his drive and dish to Hilton for the assist, setting up the game winner, that was huge.

Milap Owens said, “Flagstaff played a great game and came out early to compete on their senior night. I’m proud of Jake Hilton for shooting the ball with confidence at the end of the game and hitting a couple of big threes, including the game winner.”

The game was tight from the start, unlike the last game in Prescott, when the Badgers jumped on top 35-15 at the half. This one however was close, with Prescott up 25-24 at the break.

A very slow third quarter in production, put the Badgers in a 37-32 hole to start the final 8 minutes. The Badger offense came to life with a big 24 point quarter, as Jason Parent, who was quiet through the first 24 minutes, scored 7 of his 9 points.

Flagstaff had the ball with the game tied with a minute to play, and worked the clock down before missing three shot attempts, before the Badgers secured the rebound with :14 to play. Stedman said, “Instead of calling a timeout, I let the game play on, knowing we were going to get that last shot.”

The #12 Badgers improve to (6-3) in the Grand Canyon Region, and (8-4) overall, will host rival #11 Bradshaw Mountain (12-2) on Tueday at 7:00pm. Flagstaff slips to (4-6) in the GCR and (6-9) overall.
