Matthew Halton's A1 Boys Hawks basketball team hosted Fort Macleod's F.P. Walshe Flyers on December 3. The game was exciting to watch throughout, as two very closely matched teams struggled for the lead. The Hawks had a slight lead for most of the final quarter. In the declining minutes of regulation play the score was tied multiple times, ending in a 31-31 tie. Just over half a minute into five minutes of overtime, Hawks #10 Lloyd Lybbert made a great 3-pointer, putting the Hawks ahead 34-31. After that the Flyers dominated OT, scoring 10 unanswered points, including two free throws and a buzzer beater by #7 Brodyu Zmyrchyk to win it 41-34.

Top scorer for the Hawks was #9 Hunter Austring with 18 points.   Top scorer for the Flyers was #11 Isaiah North Peigan with 11 points.
