Bass Lake Canoes used a late rally Friday night to lose narrowly to Central-Central Hog Farmers, 47-46, in a Moonshine Conference tilt.
BLHS junior guard Terren Karen sank a 3-pointer as time expired to cut the deficit from four points to one.
Bass Lake entered the fourth quarter ahead 36-30, but then came the fourth quarter.
The Canoes were led in scoring by point guard Cody Shee, with 12 points. Shee also tallied five rebounds, but he added just zero assists.
“If he could pass the ball to himself, he’d be first-team all-conference,” said Canoes coach Zeb Dreppelin.
Shooting woes hurt the Canoes, who shot an icy 28 percent from the field. Central-Central didn’t fare much better, at 28 percent.
Bass Lake’s leading rebounder was sophomore center Malware Stevens, who stands 6-2 but is “about to hit a growth spurt any day now, I can tell,” according to his mother.
In the opening game of the boys’/girls’ doubleheader, the Young-Lady Canoes defeated the Gilts, 58-27.
Central-Central 10 10 10 17 — 47
Bass Lake 12 12 12 11 — 46
Girls’ box score: 58-27
