The Kennard-Dale boys' basketball team is making a habit out of winning just in the nick of time.
With the score tied at 38 on Friday night, Gettysburg was double-teaming the Rams' Adam Freese in the closing seconds of regulation. Freese passed the ball to Joey Thomas, who sank the winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Rams the 41-38 victory.
The win came two days after Kennard-Dale beat West York, 39-37, when Freese sank a 2-point shot with 4 seconds remaining.
