The last-second shot was the exact opposite of what happened when the teams met in Ridgway Feb. 2 when Cameron County won on a buzzer-beating shot, 26-25.

This time around, the Red Raiders led by five, 30-25, after Caden Beldin hit one of two free throws with 4:22 left. The charity shots came after Cameron County held the ball for the first 3:38 of the fourth quarter with Ridgway not even making a move to challenge the Red Raiders until 3:07 had passed.

Allegretto, though, got the Elkers back in the game when he drilled a 3-pointer from the corner at the 3:50 mark to make it 30-28.

Then after an over-and-back call on Cameron County, Park tied the game when he took a pass from Alex Bon on a backdoor cut with 3:17 left.

After Beldin missed a shot, Ridgway took the lead, 32-30 on another backdoor cut, this time from Allegretto, pass from Bon on an inbounds pass with 1:01 to play. (The play can be watched at the 2:39:59 mark of the above video).

Beldin tied the game back up at 32 when he grabbed an offensive rebound off a missed shot by Hayden Brown and laid it in with 41.2 seconds left. (The play can be watched at the 2:40:23 mark of the above video).

After Park’s rebound gave Ridgway the lead, Cameron County called timeout with 0.7 of a second left. On the inbounds play, Ridgway fouled with one to give, and Cameron County had one last chance inbounding the ball with 0.3 of a second left near midcourt.

But Beldin’s desperation 3-pointer was well off the mark.

Park led Ridgway with 14 points with Allegretto adding 11.

Beldin scored 14 for Cameron County with Dylan Guisto and Gavin Morton each adding eight.
