MONTICELLO - Junior Dylan Schoen grabbed an offensive rebound and knocked down a 15-foot jumper at the buzzer to give the Orfordville Parkview boys basketball team a thrilling 50-48 nonconference win over Monticello on Monday.

Monticello (3-16) led by as many as 13 points in the first half.

Monticello senior Zach Price injured his ankle late in the first half and didn't return. Price's injury and foul trouble doomed the Ponies as the Vikings outscored them 29-17 in the second half to storm back from a 10-point halftime deficit.

Both Monticello junior Braden Gafner and freshman Reece Rufer fouled out in the second half.

"We had to scrape some guys together who have not played much for a lineup," Monticello coach Mark Olson said. "In spite of that we still had a chance to win it. I'm so happy for them. They worked so hard and played so hard and sound. They left everything out on the court."

Monticello junior Jon Errthum scored a game-high 15 points. Rufer added 11 points. Monticello junior Travis McCoy hit three 3-pointers and chipped in nine points.

Parkview's Eli Hosheit scored a team-high nine points, drilling three of the Vikings' nine 3-pointers.
