Anthony Thomas and Nick DeCesare came up big as Union beat Western Beaver in overtime, 61-55.

DeCesare scored seven of his game-high 18 points and Thomas added six of his 16 as Union outscored the Golden Beavers 14-8 in the extended session of the Section 1-A game.

Matt Ault followed with 12 points. Thomas dished out nine assists in the game and his younger brother, Devonta Thomas the Scotties (6-3, 11-7) with a team-high 10 rebounds to go with his six points.

Union took a 30-15 lead into the half but watched as Western Beaver fought back with a 17-9 third quarter.

“They played a good second half and defended well against Jason (Burkes),” Union coach Dave Smialowski said. “Still, we stuggled offensively until we buckled down in overtime.”

The Scotties shot 23 of 67 from the field.
