Birch Run won a nail-biter 67- 62 in overtime against host Bridgeport Friday. The game went back and forth with Birch Run taking the 1st quarter 16-12. However, Bridgeport came back in the second quarter to whittle away the Panther lead, and took a  5-point (34-29) halftime lead into the locker-room. In the middle of the 3rd quarter Birch Run saw itself down by 11 points. But the Panthers went on a tremendous 9-0 run to end the 3rd quarter down by only 4 points (45-49)- thanks in big part to Trent Dalak making 7straight points for the Panthers, and Jaxon Martinus making a 2-point conversion to end the 3rd. The 4th quarter saw back and forth lead changes, and after Bridgeport missed a 3-point shot in the last seconds of regulation we went into overtime tied at 57. In overtime, Jaxon Martinous helped seal the victory making a 2-point bucket and going 6-8 from the free-throw line.Connor Mausolf also shot 2-2 from the free throw line in overtime. It was an exciting and well-deserved (67-62) win for the Panthers! Jaxon Maritnus led Birch Run with 21 points, while he and Gage Martinus each had 8 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals. Gage Martinus and Trent Dalak also had 4 deflections each.
