NEW KNOXVILLE — After a bizarre ending to regulation, the New Knoxville Rangers basketball team defeated the Anna Rockets Saturday night 79-76 in double overtime in a non-league game held at New Knoxville, but the win was not without controversy.
An inadvertent point for the Rockets was put on the scoreboard late in regulation making the score look like a four point lead for the Rockets. Jake Allen hit a three at the buzzer making the apparent score 62-61.
MINSTER 61, RUSSIA 53, OT
MINSTER — The Wildcats boys basketball team gives Minster head coach Mike Lee a bit of a sweat this season after having three close games. Minster forced Russia into overtime Saturday night and came out on top, 61-53.
Minster was down 34-44 with 3:44 left in the fourth quarter and went on a 12-2 run to send the game into overtime. Senior Adam Niemeyer started the rally with his outside jumper to come within four. Then two back-to-back triples from senior veteran Devon Poeppelman forced the Wildcats into overtime.
MINSTER — Children in Minster got the chance to visit with Santa Claus a little more than two weeks before he makes his trip around the world.
Santa appeared in Minster at the request of the Minster Parks and Recreation and the Francis J. Stallo Memorial Library, a visit that Parks and Recreation Supervisor Ryan Geise said had to be scheduled a year ahead of time just to get on the jolly old elf’s schedule. Santa arrived via fire truck, sirens blaring. The reindeer, he said, were otherwise occupied.
