Dogs' playoff chances end in 50-45 OT loss
Placeholder Image
In a season of near-misses, this was the unkindest cut of all.With its Friday night game with visiting Marlboro County knotted at 41, Camden got the ball back with four seconds left in regulation after the guests were called for a traveling violation after a CHS missed shot.Setting up a play in which Josh Council would come off a screen, the ball came to the junior guard whose 3-point jumper did everything by go down, forcing overtime. In the extra session, the guests would outscore the Dogs, 9-4, for a 50-45 victory while securing the fourth and final playoff berth in Region 6-AAA.Camden, 3-6 in 6-AAA, will host Darlington in Tuesday's regular season finale. MC improved to 3-6 in league play and even if Camden downs Darlington on Tuesday and should Lakewood upset MC, the Bennettsville squad owns the tie-breaker in having swept Camden in both meetings this season.In a 38-33 loss to MC in Bennettsville earlier this year, Camden missed its first six free throws of the night.
