KITTITAS — Jacob Treat made two free throws with 4.4 seconds to go to lift Wilson Creek to a 43-42 victory over Mansfield on Tuesday night, eliminating the Kernels from the Class 1B district tournament in gut-wrenching fashion.
Mansfield led by four points entering the final period, but Wilson Creek kept battling.
Treat drove the line with his team down one, and converted from the line to give Wilson Creek its only lead of the game. Mansfield’s Cameron Peters got off a good shot at the buzzer, but it rimmed out.

The Lions had three players score in double figures to clinch a spot in Friday’s Class 1B district title game.
CCA cut into Moses Lake’s early lead with a 12-8 second quarter, but the Lions kept CCA at bay in the second half.

CCA can still make the district title game, but must win a loser-out game Thursday to do so.
