For a basketball fan, there could not have been a better game than the one between the HHS Knights and Seminole Thursday.
Playing in the Okemah tournament, the Knights never gave up, coming from behind to take a 70-67 win over the chieftains.
The entire game was nip and tuck for Henryetta with both teams often either tied or within a couple of points of taking the lead.
While that made the entire game interesting, the final two minutes proved to be the most exciting.
There was two minutes on the clock when Henryetta was down 66-57. Skylar hit a three pointer putting the Knights down by six. In the ensuing ten seconds there were three turnovers then Nick Hudson hit a three point shot putting the Knights at 63-66.
A turnover under the basket gave the Knights possession with 55 seconds and with 37 seconds left. Greenhaw was fouled on a three point try. He would hit two of his trio of free throws putting Henryetta at 64-66.
The Knights moved ahead with 30 seconds left when Hudson got a three point goal making the score 67-66.
The Chieftains would suffer a turnover giving the Knights the ball then Jordan Short was fouled and would hit one of his two attempts.
Seminole had a chance to get two points but only captured one on a free throw series.
Short was fouled again and was shooting a one and one. He missed the first but Greenhaw was fouled and made the second of two shots with less than ten seconds left.
Seminole tried a three pointer with five seconds left but that missed the mark giving the Knights the win.
Greenhaw would have 15 points during the night with Hunter Gobin and Hudson each adding 14 followed by Short with ten, Palmer eight and Perez three.
In the earlier game, the Lady Knights lost to Rock Creek 62-30.
Henryetta got off to a slow start with only two points in the first quarter then nine more in the second and five in the third.
Makayla Greenhaw paced the Henryetta scoring with 11 points followed by Kassedi Lee with eight.
