OAKLAND - In a battle of unbeatens, North Bend Central's Sydney Emanuel's potentially game-winning running jumper just missed the mark, Oakland-Craig's Mya Guzinski grabbed the rebound as the buzzer sounded, and the Knights held on for a 40-39 victory.

Going into the contest, neither the Knights nor Tigers had trouble scoring points. But defense was the name of the game on Friday. In fact North Bend Central went nearly 16 minutes - the equivalent of almost two quarters - without a field goal.
