Lakota-Adams-Edmore’s Jordan Kuchar looks over the Rolla-Rock Lake defense during fourth-quarter action of Saturday’s Class B Day at the Devils Lake Sports Center. Kuchar and his Raider teammates fell to the Bulldogs 62-61 on a buzzer beater by Nathan Joraanstad.

A pair of 3-pointers by Cole Mitchell and Nathan Joraanstad in the final 28 seconds provided the spark as Rolla-Rock Lake completed a huge comeback and posted a 62-61 win over Lakota-Adams-Edmore in the final game of the annual Class B Day on Saturday at the Devils Lake Sports Center.

Leading 58-56 with just over one minute left in the game, L-A-E had chances to seal the win, but came up short on three of four free throw attempts down the stretch.

Mitchell’s 3-pointer from the top of the circle with 28 seconds left tied the game at 59-59.

After calling a timeout to set up a possible game-winning basket of their own, the Raiders were unable to get the ball inbounds from the side and were forced to take another timeout.

That set up Seth Kuchar’s driving layup with 11.6 seconds left to put L-A-E back in front 61-59 and forced R-RL to take a timeout of its own with 5.3 seconds to go.

Joraanstad got the ball along the side before turning and lofting the game-winner that came with just over one second left on the clock.

It capped a 14-5 rally over the final eight minutes that allowed Rolla-Rock Lake to erase a 56-48 deficit heading into the final period.

Mitchell and Joraanstad both finished with 20 points to lead the Bulldogs.

Kuchar paced the Raiders with 20 points of his own, while teammates Jacob Haman and Cole Haugland finished with 16 and 13 points, respectively.
