The last thing Dulaney coach Matt Lochte wanted to see happen in a close game is senior forward/guard Gavan Scanlan foul out.
That was the situation Friday night against visiting Loch Raven.
Scanlan left the game with 20.9 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and his team trailing by two.
"He scored 31 points and he shoots like 90 percent from the foul line," Lochte said. "And were in a situation where we are starting to get fouled."
Even Loch Raven coach Bill Toole thought it was his team's victory with Scanlan on the bench. But the night had a good ending for Dulaney as the Lions edged Loch Raven, 81-79, in double overtime in Lutherville.
The score was 70-70 after regulation and 74-74 after the first overtime.
"I don't want to say we got lucky," said Lochte, whose team led by as many as nine points in the second half. "Somehow, someway, we squeaked it out and I am proud of our guys for doing that."
Loch Raven senior guard Jordan Johnson had 22 points off the bench. Teammate Elliot Wiley scored 19 and Chris Simon added 18.
Senior guards Jordan Williams and Zach Hill finished with 14 points for Dulaney (2-0). Williams had six points in the overtimes.
The Lions went on a 6-1 run in the first 1:43 of the second 4-minute overtime as Williams scored four points during that stretch.
Loch Raven (3-1) trimmed the lead to 80-79 with 52 seconds remaining on a Jordan Johnson free throw.
Dulaney went up 81-79 with 6.3 seconds left when Jason Lawson sank a free throw.
The Lions quickly moved the ball up court for one last desperation shot.
Greg Franklin threw the in-bounds pass to Johnson, who found Logan in the right corner, but Logan's three-point attempt at the buzzer went off the front of the rim.
It was Loch Raven's third overtime game of the season. The Raiders had beaten Franklin by 10 and Parkville by one in the others.
"I was tired after this one," Toole said of the Dulaney game, in which he sat on the bench for more than five minutes after the game had ended. "It was a fun game to watch and coach, but the breaks didn't go our way."
