Logan View basketball bests Arlington boys, girls

Eagle boys fall short in 3rd straight OT


Arlington boys basketball coach Tyler Spitser knows his team won't quit.
But after Tuesday's home outcome, the Eagles are struggling with three-straight overtime losses. Logan View/Scribner-Snyder led 58-55 after the extra session this time.
Following the theme set during recent defeats to Fremont Bergan and North Bend Central, AHS held second-half leads, but couldn't close. The latest loss dropped Spitser's team to 6-7 overall.
While Colby Grefe led Arlington with 20 points Tuesday, it was Dustin Kirk's buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the fourth period that sent the Logan View game into overtime. Nick Smith had offered his own 3-point effort down 51-48, but it missed. Barrett Nielsen tracked the rebound down, saving it from going out of bounds and right to Kirk who stood just beyond the 3-point line.
The senior Eagle guard made the shot that followed, forcing the 7-4 extra period the Raiders claimed to win.
Kirk finished with 13 points and Nielsen added 11, while Logan View's Kayl Francis led all scorers with 21.
Arlington next plays 7:30 p.m. today at Douglas County West.
