Share FINAL (OT): Middle Creek 63, Broughton 61

Broughton began the overtime one quick 5-0 run thanks to a pair of Chris Corshiani free throws and a Cyrus Stewart three pointer as they took a 61-56 lead with 1:53 left in overtime.

Middle Creek came storming back just like they did in the fourth quarter to claw back and force overtime. Nate Fleming hit the first bucket for the Mustangs to pull to within three points with 95 second to play.

The Mustangs picked up another bucket this time from Brandon Hooks to make it a one-points 61-60 Broughton lead with one minute to play. On the ensuing possession, the Capitals called timeout to set up the offense. But, the Mustangs had other ideas as Quinton Ray picked off a Broughton pass and fed a cutting Donta Davis for the basket and a one-point Middle Creek lead, one they would not relinquish.

Both teams called timeouts over the last 60 seconds and with 9.9 seconds to play, Middle Creek's Jon Moore hit one of two from the line to make it a 63-61 lead. The Capitals had one shot to win it following a timeout with 8.3 seconds left. However, the shot by Chris Corchiani rimed off and Middle Creek remains perfect with a 63-61 come from behind overtime win over Broughton.

For the Mustangs, this will be their first ever trip to the semi-finals in this their third trip to the Glaxo.

Broughton will play in the consolation bracket and will play the loser of the Kinston vs. Riverside game at 12:40 pm on Wednesday ,Dec. Broughton.

Following the time out, Middle Creek went on a 12-2 spurt to end the first quarter and take a 12-8 lead into the second quarter.

Middle Creek was led by Leon Hargrove who had four points in the quarter, Marvin Wilson also chipped in three.

For Broughton, four players had two points.


The second game of day one of the GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational will feature two teams who have had very successful starts to the season. The Middle Creek Mustangs out of the Tri-9 conference, undefeated on the season and the host, Broughton Capitals of the Cap-Eight conference, who only have one loss.

Both teams like to get up and down the court so look for this to be a up-tempo game of the offensive side of the ball. On the defensive side of the ball, both squads like to get in your face and force turnovers.

Another big key will the the play of the guards, Middle Creek is very guard heavy but will be without Garrett Leatham, who is playing in a football all-star game.
