After a sluggish start which saw the Chiefs trailing by 9 to crosstown rivals Starr’s Mill at the half, the Chiefs battled back to force 2 overtimes and secure the hard fought victory. After trailing for most of the game, Burke Berry hit 2 pressure free throws with seconds remaining to tie the game at 50 to end regulation. Berry came up big in the 1st overtime period as well, sinking a floater to once again tie the game and force another overtime. A tough rebound and putback by Evan Gillanders put the Chiefs in the lead for good for the win. Shaun Nichols led all scorers with 18. Once again, the Chiefs balanced scoring attack won the day, with 4 Chiefs scoring in double figures. The win takes the Chiefs to 4-0 on the year and 2-0 in region play.
