Jackson Harrison lays in two points.

It wasn’t the opening chapter Timber Lake had in mind, but it was classic Class B boys basketball Thursday night in Wachs Arena when #7 Bridgewater-Emery edged the #2 Panthers 55-54. Classic in the sense that both teams had their peaks and their valleys, both teams played hard and at the end of it there was respect on both sides.

The Huskies controlled the first half and led 33-20 at halftime, but the Panthers surged back in the second half and had several possessions in the final minutes with a chance to tie or take the lead. It wasn’t to be, however, as B-E clung to their ever-diminishing lead and advanced to the semifinals.

The Panthers outscored their opponents in the second, third and fourth quarters, but it was a 15-4 first quarter in favor of Bridgewater-Emery that established a deficit for TLHS.
