Raiders erase 20 deficit to win B-8 Sub-District

SCOTTSBLUFF — Sidney and Scottsbluff have played some epic games over the years in district and state competition. Wednesday’s B-8 Sub-District championship game may rank among the best of them, at least for Sidney fans. Trailing 46-26 in the third quarter, the Raiders went on an improbable run to knock off top-seeded Scottsbluff in overtime 65-61.

The opening stanza was exactly what most fans expected out of these two rivals. Sidney got off to a great start behind four 3-point field goals from Arik Doty to take an early seven point lead. The Bearcats used balance scoring to battled and take their first lead of the game. Sidney responded and the first quarter ended tied at 19.

All the momentum that Sidney started the game with evaporated in the second quarter. Scottsbluff’s Jasiya Deollos took over while the Raider offense labored, only scoring 5 points in the quarter. The Bearcat sophomore poured in 8 of the Bearcats 17 second quarter points to give Scottsbluff a 12 point halftime lead, 36-24

The Bearcat onslaught continued after intermission as Scottsbluff went on a 10-2 run to take a 46-26 lead into a Sidney time out. Jake Burke, who was held scoreless in the first half, put the Raiders on his shoulders and spurred a Raider rally. The senior scored 9 of Sidney’s 11 third quarter points by driving to the hoop, knocking down 2 field goals and going 5 for 5 from the line. Meanwhile Sidney’s back court pressure defense held the Bearcats in check.

Still trailing 46-35 as the fourth quarter began, Sidney opened on a 13-2 run to tie the game at 48.  Scottsbluff used two timeouts to stem the Raider tide as the teams battled to a 55-55 tie at the end of regulation.

In the overtime period Sidney opened up a 4 point lead and answered every Bearcat score to escape with the 65.61 win.

Arik Doty led the Raiders with 18 points. Jake Burkes finished with 17 points, all in the second half, while Mitch Porter tossed in 13.

Sidney will now travel to Omaha Roncalli Catholic on Saturday for a 2:00 p.m. CST game against the 18-5 Crimson Pride.
