GOLDEN – The No. 2 Golden Demons won a thriller Wednesday night, after defeating a tough D’Evelyn team 51-48 at home in front of a packed gym.
The Demons trailed by two with under a minute remaining in the game until Jason Johnson hit a corner three, which would end up being the game winning shot, to give Golden a 49-48 lead.
Entering the final quarter, held a 38-35 lead over the Jaguars, but that lead quickly diminished after D’Evelyn went on a 11-4 run to start the fourth quarter. After calling a quick timeout, Golden only allowed the Jaguars to score two points in the final 5:21.
Golden improves to 9-2 on the year and will travel to play at Littleton next on Friday at 7 p.m. and D’Evelyn (6-5) will play at Standley Lake Friday at 7 p.m.
