Bellefonte held off Philipsburg-Osceola’s last-minute comeback attempts to earn its first boys’ basketball win of the season 66-63 Tuesday night.
The Red Raiders held a six-point lead, but a few missed free throws opened the door, and missing the front end of a one-and-bonus opportunity with 4.8 seconds left set up a final attempt for the Mounties, but Taylor Golemboski’s 3-pointer from the corner, with a hand in his face, was off the mark to close the night.
Evan Wian’s 22 points paced Bellefonte (1-3).
“He was all over the place tonight,” Raider coach Darin Hazel said. “He had a big game for us.”
