This became closer than most anyone expected.

Final score: Sewickley Academy 49, Lincoln Park 48.

It provided what has to be considered one of the greatest finishes in WPIAL basketball championship game history.

Lincoln Park rallied back during the fourth quarter and took the lead briefly, 48-46, when junior Alex Kross made a 3-pointer with less than a minute left. Sewickley Academy’s Tom Droney answered with a game-winning 3-pointer with 9.8 seconds left, and then played pressure defense on Chaquille Pratt for those final few seconds — keeping the Lincoln Park star from attempting his own game-winner. The ball went to Kross, but this time his 3-pointer rattled off the rim twice before bouncing away as time expired.
