REDBANK VALLEY 54, KARNS CITY 52
NEW BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Bryson Bain’s 3-point play with 2.9 seconds left in the game gave Redbank Valley a come-from-behind 54-52 over Karns City in its season-opener Saturday afternoon.
Bain scored all 21 of his points in the second half, 14 in the fourth quarter and the game-winning points when he sank a driving shot as he was fouled. The Gremlins had just missed their only free throw of the game just moments before the play.

Bain hit both free throws, nailed a 3-pointer on the ensuing possession and after the Gremlins turned the ball over on an offensive foul call 30 seconds later, Bain hit another 3-pointer to put the Bulldogs up 49-48 with 1:52 let to set up the wild finish.
