PHOENIX — One down. One to go.

PHOENIX — One down. One to go.

Phoenix, needing wins in its final two games to reach the Class 4A playoffs, won the first of those Friday at home, 37-29 over Henley.

The Pirates play Skyline Conference champion Hidden Valley at home on Tuesday.

"If we would have lost tonight, our season would have been over," Phoenix coach Brian Miller said. "We talked about that. We have seven seniors who didn't want this to be their last (meaningful) game.

"That was the best game we've played all year, offensively and defensively."

The Pirates (14-9, 7-4 Skyline) withstood a slow first half by outscoring Henley 24-10 in the second half. Ben Crichton came off the bench to score seven points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3:30 to play in the fourth quarter.

Phoenix earned a stop defensively on the ensuing possession, then ran nearly two minutes off the clock before making six straight free throws to clinch the victory.

The Pirates made 7 of 9 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter.

"We shoot about 47 percent (from the free-throw line), so that was good for us to come up and hit those free throws," Miller said. "If we were going to lose, we were going to lose because we couldn't hit free throws. But we did a good job of that."

The win puts Phoenix one-half game behind Henley (10-11, 8-4 Skyline) for the second and final playoff spot out of the Skyline.

The Pirates won two of three games this season against the Hornets to own the potential tiebreaker.

Phoenix found itself down 19-13 at the half after scoring just three points in the first quarter.

Miller said the Pirates missed seven total layups, three uncontested, in the first half.

"We thought we played really well," Miller said. "We had open shots, we just didn't finish. But we stayed composed."

Freshman point guard Alex Young led Phoenix with 11 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Henley's Austin Lesueur, a candidate for Skyline player of the year, was held to just 10 points. He picked up two quick fouls in the third quarter.
