BROOKINGS — Sutherlin's defense led the Bulldogs to a 39-38 Far West League boys basketball win over Brookings-Harbor on Friday.

With 25 seconds left the Bruins (7-6, 1-1) got the ball and ran it down for a shot, where Sutherlin's defense was able to keep them out off the paint. With the clock winding down Brookings-Harbor got off a shot from the perimeter, which didn't go in. Sutherlin (13-3, 2-0) got the rebound with one second left to run out the clock.

"We did a nice job blocking what they wanted to do," Sutherlin coach Willis New said. 

Mason Gill led the Bulldogs with 18 points and seven rebounds, JR Bailey also had seven rebounds in the game. Brandon Carr had 10 points and four steals. Both Carr and Gill got into early foul trouble and sat out a quarter-and-a-half with four fouls apiece.

Brookings-Harbor was led in scoring by Logan Holler with 11 points. 

Sutherlin will host South Umpqua on Tuesday.
