Concordia had the ball down one with 14 seconds left.  The Panthers gave the ball to their leading scorer Wyatt Trost.  The Redskins did not allow a shot.  The ball deflected to the floor with bodies diving on it as time expired. The Redskins won 43-42.    It must have been an exasperating moment for the Redskin bench as they left Salina South High School with their first win since December 11.  The win snaps a five game losing streak.
The game was tied 8-8 after one quarter.  The Redskins led 18-17 at halftime.  Liberal led by four at 28-24 in the third and led 30-27 after three.  The Skins took their biggest lead of seven 34-27.  The Redskins foul trouble allowed the Panthers to claw back in the game at the foul line.  Concordia tied the game 38-38 with 3:44 to go.  Concordia took a 42-38 lead before Embry Williams buried a step back three with 40 seconds left to make it 42-41 Concordia.  Hunter Huskey deflected a Concordia pass which was scooped up by Embry Willams who was fouled.  Embry sank two clutch free throws with 27.9 seconds left to lead 43-42.  Liberal got a stop but missed the front end of a one in one. Concordia had the ball down one with 14 seconds left.
Embry Williams had 11.  A.J. Ramirez had 10.  Izzy Garcia-Rotolo added nine.
The Redskins are 3-7 and Concordia is 4-4.  Liberal plays Buhler for third Saturday at 3 on 1270 and
