W hen you’re undefeated, you’re going to get everybody’s best game. And to stay on top, sometimes you have to just find a way to survive even when everything is going against you.
And everything was going against Ironwood Monday night.
The Red Devils didn’t have their leading scorer or point guard for either overtime. Ironwood gave up leads that took the game to overtime — with the help of a tough call that went against them — and a crazy play that sent it to a second overtime.
But somehow they overcame all of it and said enough was enough in the second overtime. Ironwood outscored Mellen by 11 for a thrilling 93-82 victory to improve to 9-0.
