ROCKVILLE, Md. — Will Peralta and J.R. Railing each had 12 points, but North Hagerstown was knocked out in overtime by Rockville in the first round of the Maryland Class 3A West playoffs on Friday.
With the score tied at 47, Railing hit a floater with 3 seconds left, but a foul negated the basket. The Hubs (12-11) forced a Rockville turnover, Railing took the ensuing inbounds pass and launched a 3-pointer at the buzzer, but it rimmed out sending the game to overtime.
Andrew Yacyk gave North a two-point lead in the extra period, but Rockville took control after Yacyk and Nick Colvin fouled out.
The Rams left the door open by making just 3 of 8 free throws in overtime. Up three with 8 seconds left, the Rams threw a full-court pass that was stolen by North’s Isaiah Keyes. He passed to Genc Pllana for a 3-pointer at the buzzer to tie the game, but it rattled out.
