  • KLAMATH FALLS — Rogue Valley Adventist's Caleb Allen sank two free throws with 2.8 seconds remaining to secure a 55-52 boys basketball win over Triad Thursday and put the Red Tail Hawks in position to win the Mountain Valley League championship.
    Rogue Valley is 21-3, 12-1 in league, and Triad is 18-5 and 11-2. The Red Tail Hawks visit Prospect Saturday in the regular-season finale.
    RVA has only eight players on the team after four — including three who played regularly — were kicked off last week for disciplinary reasons. When starters Jesse Gilley and Johnny Alvarez fouled out with 11/2 minutes to play, it was up to reserves Johnny James and Austin Petray to help seal the win.
    "It feels very good, really good," said coach Mike Glasgow. "We played basically five guys the whole game and they just gutted it out. It was a great effort. I'm pretty proud of them."
    And of James and Petray, who have seen little court time this season.
    "They did a good job," said Glasgow. "It was a great team effort. It wasn't like Triad played bad. They played very good basketball."
    The Hawks' lone league loss came at Triad on Jan. 5, 51-42.
    Allen scored from close range to give RVA a three-point lead inside the final two minutes, then Micah Neufeld increased it to 53-48. Triad scored the next four points before Allen's late free throws.
    A desperation shot by the Timberwolves from half-court missed.
    Micah Pirelli led RVA with 13 points, and Allen and Neufeld scored 11. Allen also had eight rebounds and eight assists, and Gilley grabbed nine boards.
