The final two home games of the regular season for the Lower Dauphin boys’ basketball team were decided in the final seconds – so what else is new? Many of the Falcons’ games this season were won and lost by single digits, including a buzzer-beating shot in a loss to rival Hershey.
So it wasn’t a new situation when last-second shots won or lost a game for the Falcons against Cedar Cliff and Mechanicsburg.
On Saturday, Feb. 8, a buzzer-beating 3-point shot by Ryan Naccarato lifted Lower Dauphin to a 62-59 victory over Mechanicsburg in Hummelstown.
On Thursday, Feb. 6, a long, last-second, miracle-coaxing shot by Lower Dauphin missed in a 56-54 loss to Cedar Cliff.
The Falcons (13-8) qualified for the District 3 Class AAAA playoffs, opening with a first-round game against Central Dauphin East (13-9) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 14 at Central Dauphin East. The winner faces top-seeded Wilson at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 19 at Wilson.
