Eight seconds left. Derby trailed Newton by two.

The Railers’ Ty Berry made one of two free throws for the three-point lead.

Panthers senior Bryant Mocaby raced down the court, but his three to tie the score was off.

Newton beat Derby 68-65, ending the Panthers’ six-game winning streak.

If Mocaby had hit the three-pointer, it would have been the second time in a week that he had scored to send a game into overtime. Derby beat Salina Central on Tuesday in double overtime; Mocaby made the game-winning three.

Friday’s loss at Newton was  a lot different from the first meeting a month ago.

The Panthers dominated the Railers Jan. 9 in a 90-71 victory, the highest scoring game this season.

This game the first half was close with Newton leading 31-30.

The Panthers took a 13-point lead in the third quarter, the biggest lead of the game.

Newton’s Alex Krogmeier led with 22 points, most of them on three-pointers, while Mocaby had 26 and Derby senior Tyler Brown had 23.

The Panthers (11-5) play host to the Salina South Cougars (4-12) on Tuesday.
