It didn’t unfold exactly how it was designed, but from the Medford Raiders’ point of view their final offensive play on Tuesday night was executed to perfection.
Justin Sullivan’s three-point play with 5.9 seconds left off a back screen by Peyton Kuhn and a terrific pass from Mason Rudolph capped a comeback from a 10-point deficit in the last seven minutes and sealed the Raiders’ 63-60 win in a non-conference thriller over Menomonie.
The win was a big one against a solid Big Rivers Conference team that is probably better than its 4-6 record shows and is part of the field of teams Medford will be jockeying with for post-season positioning later in the season.
