At Arco, Chase Green and Sage Cummins had 30 points each in an intense boys basketball rivalry game which ended 68-67 Mackay over Butte County.

Butte County coach Radley Gamett said the Pirates climbed out of a six-point deficit in the final 1:46 and then barely missed a buzzer beater shot at the end. Green had five 3-pointers for Mackay and made the final bucket of the game to put the Miners up with about six seconds left. Gamett said Cummins played aggressive the entire game.

“He’s played with a lot of confidence,” Gamett said. “That’s something he’s really honed in on this year as a senior.”

Kolton Holt added 16 points and Kyle Peterson had 10 for Mackay (9-4), which plays today at Rockland. Brady McAffee and Keyan Cummins had 11 points each for Butte County (7-6), which plays Friday at Ririe.
