“A Clash of the Titans” or the “Battle of Oxon Hill”, either way you put it, two powerhouse programs came ready to leave that night with a major victory. Potomac vs. Oxon Hill was as drama filled as expected. Oxon Hill came out surprisingly as the aggressor and put the Wolverines back on their heels early. An 18-11 first quarter lead grew to a 16 point lead by halftime (41-26), all behind the impressive play of Oxon Hill’s sharpshooter Malik Holland. Potomac owned the third quarter, outscoring Oxon Hill 16-7 to cut the lead down to 6 points (48-42) going into the 4th. Momentum now being on Potomac’s side, this seemed like the perfect set-up for a storybook ending. Both teams traded buckets throughout the 4th and with Potomac down by 3 and having possession for the last shot, Corey Dyches (Mr. 1000 pts himself) couldn’t sink the last second shot to send the game into OT. Oxon Hill escaped a scrappy conference game with the win.
