COLFAX — Colfax guard John Lustig drove to the basket for a three-point play in the waning seconds Saturday to give Colfax a 50-49 win against Lind-Ritzville/Sprague in a Northeast 2B League boys’ basketball game.

After his field goal and free throw, Lustig intercepted an inbounds pass to seal the verdict.

“It was just him attacking from the perimeter,” said a relieved Colfax coach Reece Jenkin, whose team has played three one-possession home games. “He drove in to the basket hard.”

Lustig finished with 19 points — 17 in the second half — Blake Holman kicked in an efficient 14 and Hunter Claassen ignited the Bulldogs (9-3, 3-1) with his facilitation after they trailed by 14 at the break.

“Hunter got us in attack mode, and John was the recipient of some good passes,” Jenkin said.

Jenkin said his team started with tentative play against the LRS zone. But the Bulldogs became aggressive after halftime, and were able to tie it heading into the fourth.

“These guys are a gritty group,” Jenkin said. “They carved themselves a little hole, but continued to chip away and didn’t quit. Proud of the guys.”

For the Kubs, Irene Popp scored 10 points.
