Viks take Wilsonville into OT

Posted: Tuesday, Dec 11th, 2012

Siuslaw senior guard Ryan Smith breaks through Wilsonville’s defense on a fastbreak lay-up Saturday.

Utilizing its homecourt advantage and an ability to penetrate Wilsonville’s highly physical defense, Siuslaw was able to rally late in the second quarter to tie the game at 17 with a jumper from Jake Thompson, setting the tone for a hotly contested game that would last throughout the next three periods.

With 3:50 remaining before the half, Ryan Smith gave the Vikings their first lead since early in the first quarter, slipping into the back court along the baseline to feed the ball inside off the glass. Though Wilsonville was able to answer, Thompson replied on the return after sinking another short jumper for a 21-19 lead. With just over a minute left before the break, Sam Johnson sparked a five-point rally, passing inside to John Dodson, who fed the ball to Kody Stonelake at the board to make it 23-19 for Siuslaw.
