Welcome to Patch's daily snapshot of sports in Yorktown.
Yorktown boys win thriller
Yorktown entered its boys-basketball contest against visiting Lakeland 0-10 and while that's obviously not a good thing, if you are from Yorktown and waiting to win your first game of the season, the best game to get that first win would be against your neighbor Lakeland and it did just that.
The Huskers earned their first win in dramatic fashion, beat visiting Lakeland 65-63 in overtime Jan. 12.
Yorktown rallied from from a four-point deficit with seven seconds left in regulation to get to overtime.
Connor Gately missed three free throws in the closing seconds of regulation, but made up for it by sinking three key free throws in overtime for a total of 11 points.
Teammate Aidan Fullerton recorded two put-back layups, including the eventual game-winner.
Fullerton finished with 14 points and nine rebounds.
Matt Wright led Lakeland with 25 points.
