Cove then outscored the Panthers 12-5 in overtime to advance.

The Leopards then outscored Imbler 18-8 in the second period to take a 27-16 halftime edge.

Cove then built its cushion to 41-34 with 1:57 left in  regulation.

That’s when Imbler answered.

Wesley McDaniel scored four points and Jake McLean three to tie the game at 41-41 with 40.8 seconds left.

Cove’s Scott DelCurto missed a short jumper with 10 seconds left. Imbler rebounded but couldn’t get another shot off.
