Noel Lambert’s Under-18 boys fought out a one-point overtime win, 71-70, against Brentwood Fire with 16 points each from Ben Winter, Blake Read and Ethan Price, writes Rob Schatten.

Winter tied the game at the free-throw line with seconds on the clock. An 8-0 run in the first three minutes of overtime gave Ipswich the lead, with Brentwood then scoring seven points in 45 seconds before Ipswich saw the game out.
