Danville_win_championship.jpgBARRE- Danville Indians has not won a championship for 25 years. Well that all changed on Saturday at the Barre Auditorium when they were able to cut down the net beating the one seeded Twin Valley Wildcats, coming back from a 10 point deficit.

 With four minutes left to play and the Wildcats up by 10. It looked like Danville would have to wait another year to win the state championship. Until a 17-0 run for the Indians happened. Brett Elliots big three pointer in the 17-0 run really turned the game around for Danville. They started playing great defense making Twin Valley shoot tested shot after shot.

Player Brett Elliot had this about the comeback, "Oh my we knew we were down ten late. It wasn't looking real good." Until he hit a shot and " once that happened we were like okay thats two baskets lets play some defense pay each possession we have to get something to go in. That s how we played this whole entire year by each possession. Cheerish each possession." That did the trick as Danville upset twin valley 50-43.

Scott Rainville head coach of Danville was happy with his teams solid comback. " It means the world not for me but for these guys they have worked so hard and i know twin valley has worked just as hard and played one heck of a game. I've been apart of these kids lifes and now they are young men."
