Collin Dague's clutch field goal in the final seconds lifted the Hornets to a two-point win over Verndale Jan. 5 on the Henning court.

The two Park Region Conference clubs were tied at 54-all when Henning brought the ball upcourt with 20 seconds left. A defensive miscue allowed Dague run through a sunken zone and score the go-ahead points on a lay-up with just five seconds remaining. The Pirates, who had battled back from a nine-point deficit at halftime, were not able to get a good look at the hoop for their final shot.

Dague finished the night with 28 points while Anders Amundson scored 12.
