Horizon Shocks Fairview in Overtime
The Fairview High School Knights boys' basketball team suffered a tough loss at home Thursday night falling to Horizon 95-93 in overtime. The Knights was leading Horizon in the first three quarters before Horizon rallied for 31 points in the fourth quarter. Horizon’s Matthew Ramos shot the buzzer-beater three-pointer to tie the game 79-79. “We played really well the first three quarters,” Junior Chris Arehart said, “then [Horizon] hit shots and we didn’t.” Fouls played a large role for both teams with each team having 29 fouls total. The fouls cost the Knights especially in the fourth quarter and overtime which helped Horizon slowly come back to the take the game. “We had gotten so many foul calls,” said Senior Miles Mackenzie. “So that was rough. That kind of hurt us.” In overtime, the Knights were given an opportunity to tie the game with Senior Gabe Tierney, who lead the team with 25 points on the game, just missed the game-tying shot as time expired. “I really thought we had it,” Mackenzie said on the shot. “Gabe, he’s one of our best shooters, and I thought was going to get it, but he wasn’t in the right spot. He’s more of a catch and shoot kind of guy, and he had to take it off the dribble. I think if you gave him that shot nine out of ten times, he’d probably hit it.” If you are interesting in seeing a game, the Knights will play Legacy on Tuesday and rival Monarch on Friday at Fairview. Both games are at 6:30.
