CUMBERLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Greely let a 16 point lead slip away and fell behind late to Falmouth, but the Rangers had just enough to rally and beat the Yachtsmen in overtime 57-53.

The reigning Class 'B' champs Falmouth, who are now in Class 'A', lost for the first time in 10 contests (5-1). Greely remains undefeated (5-0).

After trailing the entire game, Falmouth took their first lead with over four minutes left in regulation on a Nick Burton three and were able to extend it to five at 43-38 aminute later thanks to Jack Simonds pull-up jumper.

Greely's defense held the rest of the way in regulation and Connor Hanley's three-pointer from the corner would tie at 43 before Simonds' last-second attempt from 30 feet bounced off the back iron sending the game to overtime.

In the extra session, the Rangers built an eight-point lead that Falmouth was able to reduce to three.
