Placeholder Image
BLANCHARDVILLE - Pecatonica junior point guard Colton Schraepfer played limited minutes, but he made two free throws with 6 seconds to go to give the Vikings a thrilling 54-53 win over Barneveld Tuesday.

With the win, Pecatonica (7-5, 5-0 Six Rivers East) takes over sole possession of first place in the conference. Vikings senior Evan Prust scored a team-high 15 points. Junior teammate Zack Eaton and sophomore Jaden Hendrickson each added 11.

"It's been a pretty trying two or three weeks with Colton hurt and some of our guys battling sickness," Pecatonica coach Matt Fink said. "It's very rewarding. There is still a lot of ball left. We have to play them (Barneveld) again and we know how good Black Hawk is."

Schraepfer had missed the past four games due to an ankle injury.

"He played sparingly - only about 5 or 6 minutes," Fink said.

Barneveld's Malcolm Reed scored a game-high 19 points and Jacob Slaney added 11. Kauy Fargo, who entered the game averaging 22 points per game, was limited to 10 by the Vikings. Slaney missed a 12-foot jumper at the buzzer and Reed's rebound and potential putback was too late.

Argyle 25
