MEDFORD — Dominic Lewis scored 24 points before fouling out, and Kai Coster picked up the slack with four points in overtime as sixth-ranked Cascade Christian staved off No. 4 Sutherlin for a 47-43 Far West League boys basketball victory Tuesday night.

With the Challengers leading 46-43, Coster hit one of two free throws to make it a two-possession game, a deficit Sutherlin couldn't overcome.

The Bulldogs (11-3, 1-1 FWL) had a chance to win the game in regulation, but missed an open attempt at the basket as time expired.

Collin Bodine poured in 16 points to lead Sutherlin, while Kolbi Stinnett and Josh Davis each added nine points. Bulldogs leading scorer Mason Gill was held to just three fourth-quarter points.

The Bulldogs are home against Brookings-Harbor in FWL play Friday.
