   We all know how it goes, only one team can walk away with the title and that title left with the blue medal of victory firmly clasped in their individual hands of Andrean.

   The Linton Stockton Miners still have only been able to secure two state runners up trophies in their visits to Banker’s Field House. But, the 59ers finally put the end to their runner up list securing a  59-54 victory over the Miners in Saturday’s second game.

    There was never much of a lead in today’s game, as the biggest lead was by the Miners in the 4th quarters with six points ahead. To help them win the game the 59ers went on a 11 point score run in the last minutes of the game after the Miners went to a ball control game.
