Bradley-Bourbonnais rallied from five points down in the final 50 seconds to tie Lincoln-Way West and force overtime . The Boilermakers went on to defeat the host Warriors in Southwest Suburban Conference Red action Friday.


The Boilermakers (12-2, 5-1) used a three-pointer from guard Micah Bradford to cut the Warriors’ (9-6, 3-3) lead to 56-54. Jon Marotta’s layup made it 58-54 Lincoln-Way West before four straight points from Bradley’s Zachary Hollywood and Levester Harris sent the game to overtime. Bradford’s three-pointer to start the overtime gave Bradley a lead it would not relinquish.


Bradford came off the bench to score eight points in the final minute of regulation and the first two minutes of overtime. Hollywood led Bradley with 20 points. The Warriors’ Hayden Witt led all scorers with 23 points. West freshman Marco Pettinato scored 17.


The Boilermakers outrebounded the Warriors 33-28 including 18-5 on the offensive glass.
