Breaking into the top 10 stories of the Twin Cedars sports season over the past year, our 10th moment comes from the literal end of the girls basketball regular season. The Twin Cedars girls basketball team had just added a third matchup against Diagonal to their schedule a week before the game was to be played, but what a game it was as the Sabers won in the closing seconds 39-38 on February 8th
Cheyanne Bruns led the way for the Sabers with 12 points and Brooke Roby added another 10, but it was the last two points that mattered most.
Down one with Diagonal inbounding in the waning seconds, Roby forced a turnover and drove to the basket to lay in the winning shot with five seconds to go. It was the only lead the Sabers had at any point of the contest.
Head Coach Trent Verwers says it was among the wildest games he has ever coached. Verwers adds that while the team didn’t have their greatest showing, the determination to win is one thing that put them over the competition.
