The Oak Park Raiders’ No. 1 ranking, their resiliency and ultimately their resolve were put to the test by a familiar foe, a test they passed honourably led by two veterans of their leadership core in the dying moments Monday night.

 

Leading by three with less than 30 seconds to go, Raiders forward Wyatt Tait drove to the basket. His layup attempt missed, bouncing off the rim and out, but guard Chris Chang was there to tip the rebound into the net. It was Oak Park’s 23rd offensive board of the game, and the dagger they needed to secure a 78-73 victory and their second varsity boys provincial basketball championship in three years.
