The Louis Riel Rebelles moved into a tie for first place in the East Division of the NCSSAA on Wednesday, after narrowly downing the St. Peter Knights 67-66.

The Knghts came oh so close to pulling off the upset against the Rebelles, but in the end poor free throw shooting did them in. They made just two of eight free throws in the fourth quarter, and missed five free throws in a row in the final minute including the open shot of a one-and-one bonus with 9.4 seconds left.

The Knights were trailing by five points after three quarters and narrowed the deficit to just two points when Alex Dipenta (11) opened the fourth quarter with a three point bomb.

Jo Padou (15) would eventually tie the game off an inbound steal with under six minutes to go, but he was unable to convert the threepoint play after he intercepted the inbound pass.

A short time later Padou would give his team their only lead of the game when he sank a lay up to briefly put the Knights up 58-56.

Louis Riel retook the lead with five minutes left in the game and managed to maintain a one point advantage into the final minute when they gave St. Peter multiple chances to win, or at least tie the game, after their own shots failed to drop.

After one Rebelles miss, the Knights inexplicably threw the ball away on a needless high risk pass with 34 seconds still on the clock.

Besides the poor free throw shooting, the Knights also had difficulty inbounding the ball in the third quarter, turning it over at least three times which the Rebelles converted into points.

The Knights' Daymon Williams (3) led all scorers with 24 points, while Dipenta added 14 points for St. Peter.

The Rebelles were led by Shubham Nayyar (9) who scored 23 points, and Adam Malekos (5) who added 21 points.

With one game left on the regular season schedule, the Rebelles can finish no worse than second, while the Knights are now mathematically eliminated from the post season.
