Horsham bring Mildura Heat’s streak to an end

Mildura Heat’s winning streak was stopped at four on Saturday night after a three-point overtime loss to top-of-the-ladder Horsham in Country Basketball League round eight.

Mildura led at every break and by seven points with just two minutes to go in regulation time before the Hornets gained ascendancy in overtime and survived a late rally by the home team to win 80-77.

It looked like the match would be one that got away for Mildura, who led by as much as 12 points early in the game, when Horsham skipped out to a six-point lead with 1:40 to play in overtime.
