Just as anyone who ever has attended a Bradshaw versus Prescott sporting event expected, Friday's boys' basketball action kept the fans' bloomers on the edge of their bleachers.
But after multiple lead changes and despite two 3-pointers from Bradshaw's Tyler Inglehart in the closing seconds, the Badgers bested the host Bears 62-60.
Bradshaw's Javier Olivas opened scoring from downtown and followed up with a second consecutive long shot for an early 6-0 lead.
Senior Andy Nelson widened the gap further, to 9-2, with a lay-up and subsequent free throw. The Bears led 20-17 after one quarter.
Prescott started the second with two to trail by one, but junior Zach Herman quickly sank a 3-pointer to make it 23-19.
Bradshaw went up 29-21 before the Badgers caught up for the game's first tie at 29-29, three-and-a-half minutes before the half.
Prescott took its first lead, 34-33, with 50 seconds left in the half.
Olivas regained the lead for Bradshaw in the third quarter but went down on the jump shot with a sprained ankle. The Bears played the rest of the game without their senior point guard.
After a 6-point Bear lead, the Badgers tied it at 43-all with a pair of treys.
Sophomore Bryce Kimball moved Bradshaw ahead 3 points, then Prescott went up by one on a nearly full-court pass and lay-up.
Kimball's deuce saw the home team with a 48-47 lead as the third quarter ended.
Fourth quarter scoring began with two points from Herman. But halfway through the period, Prescott regained a lead they would not relinquish, despite late treys from soph Lucas Herman and junior Inglehart.
Bradshaw played host to Agua Fria yesterday, after the Tribune's press time.
