SKOWHEGAN - Several lead changes alongside a buzzer-beater at the end of the first overtime served as a microcosm for Thursday night's Class A North boys prelim between No. 9 Brewer and No. 8 Skowhegan. A game so good, it came down to a second overtime.

 

The Indians managed to escape and enter the quarterfinals, taking down Brewer 72-65.
