Marengo tops Thunder for 3rd place
MARENGO – When Marengo’s Jesse Darlington caught the pass beyond the 3-point arc and began to shoot, the Indians’ bench stood up along with most of the fans occupying the bleachers.
After two missed 3-point tries on the two previous possessions, the crowd and players had something to cheer about this time as Darlington’s shot fell through the net with 58.9 seconds to play to give the Indians (5-8) their first lead of the game, by two. The Indians won, 64-63, after trailing by 15 points after the third quarter.
“The play was a pick-and-roll and they just found me,” Darlington said after Marengo beat Woodstock North in the third-place game at the E.C. Nichols Tournament. “It felt pretty amazing when it went in.”
