In a game reminiscent of the old days when the Krueger Dynasty reigned, Clear Lake used solid team basketball to defeat the state ranked Dickinson Gators Friday night at Dickinson. It was an exciting game that would get any fan's heart pumping faster. 

With just over 30 seconds remaining Dickinson's Tramon Mark (#3), who was held to 29 points in the outing, drained a three to make it 69-70, Lake by 1. JaJa Sanni scores another basket in the paint to make it Lake up by 3. In the waning seconds a final trey by Tramon Mark missed the mark and the Falcons held on to defeat their nemesis.
