Edgerton High withstood Clinton’s late ball possession to avoid a major upset in Rock Valley boys basketball Friday night.


While the host Cougars scored one point in the fourth quarter, Edgerton rallied for a 41-37 victory that boosted the Crimson Tide to 3-0 in the conference and 5-0 for the season.


Clinton (2-3, 2-1) rallied from a 13-6 deficit with 20-10 advantage in the second quarter to lead 26-23 at halftime. The Cougars carried a 36-33 lead into the final period.


Grant Oldenburg’s free throw gave Clinton its only point of the fourth quarter and a 37-35 lead with five minutes remaining. After the Crimson Tide went up 39-37 on a basket by Bryan Gregory with four minutes left, the Cougars held the ball for three minutes in an attempt for a last shot.


Edgerton finally regained possession with a minute left when a Clinton player stepped on the boundary line. It still came down to a thrilling finish, however, and Keifer Carry barely missed on a game-tying shot with three seconds left.


Gregory then made two free throws with one second left to clinch the victory. The 6-4 junior center made six of nine field-goal attempts overall in leading Edgerton with 17 points.


Derek Carrier had 10 points for the Crimson Tide, while Oldenburg and Cary paced Clinton with 11 apiece.
