It took all 36 minutes for the Chargers to pull out the victory over Dominican, 48-47, and advance to the Sectional Final. In a back and forth battle it all came down to the final 11 seconds of the game with the Chargers down 1. Grant Biesterfeld took the ball and drove to the middle but when he was stopped he pitched the ball back to Solomon Zarling who took two dribbles left, used a shot fake to get the defender in the air, and released a 15 foot shot that was nothing but net as time expired. The team and the fans went into a frenzy and the celebration was on!
Solomon Zarling lead the Chargers with 23 points and was one rebound shy of another double-double. Everyone will remember Solomon’s game winner but Zachary Zuleger also had a memorable night. Zach was a monster inside as he scored 16 points and pulled down an incredible 19 rebounds! These seniors truly put on a performance that players and fans will not soon forget.
The Chargers now turn their focus to a familiar foe and prepare to take on Waupun in the Sectional Final this Saturday, 3/10, at Whitefish Bay High School.
