Noticeably bothered by a bum ankle, Seattle Prep’s D.J. Fenner, son of former Seattle Seahawks running back Derrick Fenner, scored 26 points, and his two free throws with 5.5 seconds to go iced the victory over the Blazers.
“D.J. Fenner, he’s a good player – even on a bad ankle,” said Timberline standout Donaven Dorsey, who was ailing himself with back spasms, but still played 29 minutes.
Sophomore sharpshooter Jack Steward did as much as Fenner to end Timberline’s season. Stewart made five 3-pointers, four in the second half. Three of those broke a tied score.
“Jack Stewart, down the stretch the last six games has been huge,” Seattle Prep coach Michael Kelly said.
After the game was tied for the final time at 45 with 4:56 to go, Dorsey went to the bench with his fourth foul at the 4:24 mark, and seconds later Fenner scored inside to give Seattle Prep a 48-45 lead.
Dorsey did cut it to 54-52 on a top-of-the-arc 3-pointer with 7.3 seconds remaining, but Fenner clinched it with two no-doubt free throws a few seconds firstname.lastname@example.org
