From Sun staff reports

Lake Clifton survived host New Era in Class 1A South Section II boys basketball final Wednesday.

Shawn Matthews made his fifth 3-pointer of the game to draw the Jaguars (9-7) within one with three seconds remaining, but the Lakers (15-10) were able to inbound the ball and run out the clock to win, 52-51.

"We created some turnovers in the fourth quarter, but [New Era] still made some shots," Lake Clifton coach Herman "Tree" Harried said.

New Era led 14-10 before Lake Clifton took a 22-20 lead at the half. The Lakers outscored the Jaguars 18-6 in the fourth quarter to win.

Kai Thompson had 10 points for Lake Clifton.

No. 13 C. Milton Wright 73, Dundalk 67: Corey Bays scored a game-high 25 points to power the host Mustangs (20-3) past the Owls (18-6) in Class 3A North Section II.

Benjamin Franklin 72, Edmondson 62: The Bayhawks (18-6) used five players in double-digit scoring to get past the Red Storm (11-11) in Class 1A South Section I at Digital Harbor.

Ben Franklin was led by Anthony Coffey (19 points), Daquan Grier (16 points), Tyheem Potillo (11 points), Dameone Suggs (10 points) and Larry Walker (10 points).

The Bayhawks jumped out to an 18-point lead early, but in the fourth quarter turnovers and missed foul shots allowed Edmondson to draw closer.

Annapolis 65, Broadneck 54: Walter Tolliver made a pair of early 3-pointers and Chris Jones finished with a game-high 19 points as the Panthers (17-7) turned aside the upset-minded Bruins (11-13) in the Class 4A East Section I final. Annapolis will travel to Meade on Friday night for the regional title game.

Broadneck, which upset top-seeded North Point on Monday, got 16 points from Emmett Davis, but couldn't pull off a second straight stunner after ousting top-seeded North Point on Monday.
