Woodbridge players celebrate Truman Brown's buzzer beater in double overtime during a Sunset-Pacific Coast League Challenge game against Edison at University High School on Tuesday.

Woodbridge edges Edison in 2-OT thriller

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

IRVINE – Double overtime is a dramatic enough situation on its own merits. The final 28 seconds of Woodbridge’s matchup with Edison took the tension to another level.

There were three clutch shot in the final moments between the Warriors and Chargers on Tuesday night. The final one gave Woodbridge a 76-74 victory against Edison in double overtime in the Sunset-Pacific Coast League Challenge at University High.

A 3-pointer by Michael Scarlett gave the Warriors (11-6) a 74-72 lead. Woodbridge might have appeared a bit too excited, as Edison (13-3) raced down the court after the inbounds pass, which led to Jake Haar tying the score with a layup with 13 seconds left on the clock.

Truman Brown provided the final heroics as he responded to the Haar make by knocking down a jumper as the clock hit zero, which in turn snapped the Warriors’ two-game losing streak.

“We were staring down the barrel of a three-game losing streak going into league and no one wants to be there,” Woodbridge coach John Halagan said. “So I have to commend our guys for having a little intestinal fortitude and just sticking with it.”

Woodbridge trailed by 16 points in the first half, and 13 in the second before rallying.
