TOUCHET - Touchet's boys basketball team defeated St. John- Endicott 34, 32 here Fiday.

The game came down to the final 10 seconds and was close throughout.

Touchet coach Tim McKeown set up an out-of-bounds lob to Jake Hodnefield. Hodnefield wasn't open and the Indians passed it to Matt Kates, who found Eric Hines in the corner. Hines threw up an air-ball, but the ball dropped into the hands of Touchet teammate Joey Weber on the other side of the hoop. Weber put in the game-winner off the backboard.

With four seconds remaining, St. John-Endicott got off a shot from just behind the 3-point line but missed.

Game over and the Indians improved to 2-1.

"We were just hard-nosed enough to win the defense-orientated game," McKeown said.

In Friday's action, the Indians suffered their one and only loss this season at Rosalia, 69-29.

"Rosalia was a very good, quick and big team," McKeown said. "We just didn't gel or get into the groove of the game."

Scoring leaders for the two games were Kates (22 points total) and Hodnefield (17 points total).
