The Garner Trojans fell to New Hanover in an epic battle Friday night.

Garner played catch up most of the game, but closed the gap at the end of regulation.

In the third overtime, New Hanover took a 94-92 lead with 4.4 seconds to go.

Garner called a timeout to set up their best play. Rules say that after a timeout, a player cannot take steps along the sideline during the inbounds pass. The referee called the Trojan player for moving, a spot foul in this case, resutling in the turnover.

The game ended 94-92 and the Wildcats eliminated the Trojans from the playoffs.
