Frankton loses another title game thriller

LAPEL — It was a second straight classic boys basketball matchup for the Lapel sectional title.

But for the second straight year a game that seemed Frankton’s to win, got away late and Wapahani again won, this time 64-63.

Where last year it was a last-second shot that went in to doom the Eagles, this year it was a shot that didn’t go in during the game’s closing seconds that sent Frankton home without a title.

Even though the contest was close throughout, Frankton had a big advantage in time of possession with the lead. The Eagles got off to a 9-0 start as Aaron Korn, Nick Wright and Brady Ashton rained in 3 in the team’s first three possessions. The Raiders were forced to take a time out.

Frankton led by six after one quarter, trailed by one at halftime and had a three-point edge going into the final eight minutes.

The teams could never get much distance from one another through the final quarter and Wapahani senior guard Grant Evans completed a three-point play with a drive and a free throw to tie the game at 60 with 1:40 to play.

Frankton junior Brayden Ginder hit a 3 at the 1:22 mark. It was his fourth 3-pointer of the game without a miss. Seven seconds later it appeared that Wright had tied up Evans for a jump ball. The possession arrow favored the Eagles. But the officials called a foul and sent Evans to the free throw line for a pair of shots. He hit both but Frankton still led 63-62.

With 1:03 to play, Wapahani fouled Korn, who went to the line for a one-and-one, an area where he struggled on this night. He missed the front end and the Raiders got the rebound. That was a familiar result. Wapahani had 18 defensive rebounds and Frankton three offensive boards.
