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.

The State B Tournament is where seasons and careers come to a close. Eight teams have left behind the scores of other schools. The eight have risen above the others through rounds of playoff basketball and the perspective that they are among the best and the few whose season is still alive ... is lost in a dream. A dream of a state title. Just three games away.

The seasons, they come to a close for each of the final eight. Probably, only one will be truly satisfied. This year, that team was Clark/Willow Lake, who won the title on the strength of senior Jacob Prouty’s outside shooting and overall excellence. Seven other teams felt the sting of soaring so high, but perhaps not as high as they hoped. Hopefully they enjoyed the journey.
