The Miramonte boys basketball team will leave the 2008-09 season with a sour taste in their mouth despite winning the DFAL with a perfect 12-0 record and reaching the NCS Division III final.
The Matadors received a huge game from star player Eric Obeysekere, who finished the night with 28 points and 15 rebounds. He scored 14 of his points in a third quarter that saw Miramonte jump out to a 13-point lead.
Analy-Sebastopol High went on a hot streak for the rest of regulation though. They slowly closed the gap with clutch shooting and tied the game, 69-69, on a well-guarded three-pointer with only five seconds left to play.
The momentum heading into overtime was too much for the Matadors to overcome, as they fell by a final score of 76-73.
