  • ROSEBURG — The final moments of Friday's game against Roseburg stung double for the Crater boys basketball team.
    After Andrew Weber gave the Indians a tiebreaking basket with 5.8 seconds left, Crater's plea for a timeout went unseen by officials as time expired and host Roseburg locked down a 49-47 Southern Oregon Hybrid victory.
    Weber's contested, leaning baseline jumper gave the Indians the final say after the Comets rallied late in the fourth quarter to tie the game.
    As the ball went through the net, Crater coach John Parent said he and his assistant coaches and players tried to call a timeout but it was not granted by the officials, who were watching the inbounds play as time expired.
    "It was the most unbelievable thing I've ever seen in my life as a coach," Parent said. "I don't want to take anything away from the kids, but it just wasn't right. We were screaming for a timeout at midcourt, jumping up and down while 5.8 ran off the clock. My assistants were all yelling and I was yelling."
    Crater and Roseburg entered the fourth tied at 36-all but the Comets quickly fell behind by six and it stayed that way for much of the period.
    With about a minute remaining, Evan Erskine and Connor Lane each turned steals into transition baskets for the Comets. Lane's bucket tied it at 47-all with eight seconds left.
    On the Indians' ensuing possession, Weber splashed in the game-winner.
    "It was a fantastic basketball game," Parent said. "Both teams played extremely well. We executed, they executed. It was a true war. This is the best I've seen a Crater basketball team in a first half. I couldn't be more proud of how they played. It's just unfortunate the way it ended."
    Cody Dismukes paced the Comets (8-6, 2-2 SOH) with 15 points and seven rebounds. Lane tallied 13 points and Erskine added four assists.
    Alex Johnson scored 15 points to lead the way for the first-place Indians, who improved to 3-0 in the SOH and 11-2 overall.
