In a back-and forth game that went into overtime, the Cedars Christian School Eagles flew off with the boys junior B district final title on Feb. 10.

The College Heights Cougars had the lead early in the game and at the halfway mark the score was 29-22 for the Cougars.

The third period went back and forth and the Eagles briefly pulled into the lead only to have College Heights tie the game 35-35 in the last five seconds of play.

It was the Cougars turn to take the lead in the fourth and the Eagles kept up and, with less than a minute left in regular play, tied the game 44-44.

In overtime the Eagles sunk four baskets to the Cougars two, taking the game 52-48.
