The South Fork JV boys lost a heartbreaker in the final seconds to Ferndale. With five seconds left the Cubs scored what looked to be the game-winning basket taking the lead 44-43. When Ferndale in bounded the ball they took a desperation shot from their own backcourt and it found its way in to the basket at the buzzer to win the game 46-43.

"This was a real tough loss." Coach Todd Vandenack said, "We have a couple more games left and we hope to finish strong."
