LACEY — Kyle Bambauer’s basket with 2.3 seconds remaining gave Ocosta a dramatic win over Northwest Christian in a Pacific League game Friday night at Lacey.

Bambauer then nailed an 18-footer for what proved to be the winning margin. The Wildcats then stole the inbound pass and ran out the clock.

“The whole fourth quarter was tight, bucket for bucket,” Ocosta coach Jason Quinby said. “It was a pretty exciting game, more fun to win those types of games.”

Caleb Tackett led Ocosta’s balanced attack with 13 points. James Benn had 11 points and 12 rebounds, while Dan Sobrera added 10 points and five assists. Alex Herrera added five steals.
