After losing to GHS by one point earlier this season, the Buchholz boys made the most of their second chance on Friday, downing the Hurricanes in overtime, 57-55 to earn a split of the season series.

Buchholz (11-12) had lost 14 of the previous 15 meetings against GHS (14-8) head to head. The Hurricanes also had their six-game winning streak this season halted.

Elsewhere, Hawthorne shut down Eastside in another rivalry showdown, 46-33. The Hornets (6-4) avenged last season’s one-point loss to the Rams (4-16).
