Ryan scores 90 to win in overtime

KENMARE – It took a season-high point total, but the Bishop Ryan boys basketball team escaped Kenmare with a 90-89 overtime win on Tuesday.

Brody Bosch paced the Lions (6-6) with 26 points. Mitch Medalen had what coach Scott Medalen believes is a career-high 14 points. Jared Will (20 points) and Austin Eggl (16) also scored in double figures.

According to Scott Medalen, Ryan was forced to rally from an 11-point deficit in the final 2 1/2 minutes to force the extra period.

“We made enough shots to sneak out a win,” Medalen said. “It was one of the wilder, wilder high school basketball games I’ve been involved in.”

The Lions’ next contest is a home game against Surrey at 7:15 p.m. on Friday.

The Majettes return home to host Bismarck Century at 7:15 p.m. Thursday night.
