  Original Published: 1/10/2014The Shelby Whippets picked up their first NOL win of the season downing rival Willard at Shelby in overtime 67-58 Friday. Tristan Kehres led all scorers with a game high 23 points with three other Whippets in double figures with Lucas Bihl getting 14, Brandon Schneider 11 and Corey Cox 10. The Whippets trailed by as many as 11 at the beginning of the third quarter, but trailed by just one after three 44-43. Both teams saw the lead go back and fourth until late in the game the Whippets led by three at 55-52, until Willard's Carson Ebert hit a three with 7.2 seconds remaining. Ebert nearly won the game for the Flashes in regulation after he stole the ball from Kehres, dribbled to mid court and let fly with a shot at the horn that was just off the mark. But in the overtime the Whippets outscored Willard 12-3 to improve to 5-5 overall and 1-4 in the NOL. Willard put four players in double digits led by Carson Ebert with 19, Jordan Moore had 14, Logan Blanchard 10 and Conner Robinson 11. Both Moore and Ebert fouled out of the contest. The loss drops the Flashes to 7-4 in all games, 2-3 in the NOL.
