Bear Lake missed 1 of 2 free throws to give Shurtliff, who led both teams with 17 points, a chance to win it.

"We led the whole game," Bear Lake coach Brandon Carlsen lamented. "We led by two with nine seconds left and Shurtliff hit a 3 from about eight feet behind the arc to beat us.

Gage Stoddard scored 19 points for the Grizzlies, who led 39-26 heading into the fourth but scored just three points in the period.

“We were up 15, had a chance to walk away with it,” Grace coach Rory Lloyd said. “They came back and hit some big shots, we had some turnovers. The tide kind of turned on us a bit. But it was a good win, good team effort. In overtime, we got things back in our control, made some free throws, made some plays.”

Grace (7-10, 4-0 1A DI District 5-6) hosts Raft River on Wednesday.
