COOS BAY – For the third year in a row, the Amity Warrior boys have lost in the quarterfinals of the OSAA Class 3A State Tournament.

This time, it was Portland Adventist, 84-82 in overtime, who delivered the blow at the Pirate Palace in Coos Bay.

Jamie Stull’s dead-center three-point shot with less than a minute left put Amity back on top after a 12-point first half lead slipped away, but Portland Adventist’s Stuart Tonack returned the favor with nearly the same shot to force the extra four minutes. Stull drove the lane for a layup with 9 seconds left in OT but was denied at the cup, and subsequent tip-in attempts were futile.

Lance Nelson finished with a game-high 34 points and 15 rebounds, earning Moda Health Player of the Game honors for the Warriors. Stull scored 26 and Kolton Rohde added 12.

No. 2 Amity (23-5) enters the consolation bracket, where they’ll face fellow upset victim No. 3 Blanchet Catholic tomorrow morning at North Bend High School. Game time is set for 10:45 a.m.
