Jones’ buzzer-beater lifts Quakers over Cadets



The Quakers were led by freshman Max Kurkowski, who scored 18 points. Kurkowski contributed 15 points of Plainfield’s 29-23 halftime lead as he carried the load for his team.

“He really did offensively,” Plainfield coach Andy Weaver said.

Cascade burst out of the locker room with a 9-0 run to start the third quarter and led 32-29 after two Daljot Bajwa free throws. Bajwa led Cascade with 16 points and 12 rebounds on the night.

DuBois gave his team simple instructions in the locker room: “Stop 20 (Kurkowski) from scoring.”

The Cadets listened as the freshman only had three points in the fourth quarter.

The Quakers scored two field goals in the third and they didn’t come until the final 2:30 of the period.

“Sometimes we have an empty quarter, that’s our nemesis and we had an empty quarter there in the third quarter,” Weaver said.

Bobby Jensen added two points and then Will Williams connected on a 3-pointer to give Plainfield a 34-32 lead at the end of the third.

“A huge three by Will Williams at the end of the third quarter,” Weaver said. “I thought that was huge, a little momentum, and then we got the first bucket of the fourth quarter so that little stretch there got us a little bit of a lead.”

The Quakers tacked on two buckets from Williams and Jensen again to stretch the lead to 38-32 in the fourth.

Cascade again battled back, as an offensive rebound and putback by Schuyler Hart cut the lead to 41-39. Jensen scored a layup to stretch the deficit to four points but Bajwa grabbed an offensive rebound and scored with 1:01 remaining to make the score 43-41.

Weaver credited Williams, Kurkowski, and Jensen for stepping up during the fourth quarter.

“With that empty third quarter, we had to put some points on there and then have a lead,” he said.
