After having one of the best DFAL basketball seasons in recent memory, the Miramonte boys suffered a devastating loss in overtime in the NCS Division III final Friday night. Things didn’t get any better for the Matadors in their NorCal Division III quarterfinal game against Enterprise-Redding.
Despite trailing for almost the entire game, Miramonte took a 51-50 lead with just 18 seconds left thanks to a basket by star player Eric Obeysekere.
A ticket to the NorCal semifinals was stolen from Miramonte’s hands as Enterprise-Redding’s top player, Anthony Williams, drove to the basket and scored a lay-up with only 2.5 seconds remaining.
A last-second effort by the Matadors came up short, and their season came to a disappointing end.
