PHS beats Milton in district title thriller
MILTON, Fla. (WEAR) —
Saturday night was PHS senior Shawndarius Cowart's birthday, and he played like it.
Cowart hit a game-tying shot with one second left in regulation, and then a game-winner at the buzzer in overtime to lift PHS to a 45-43 win over Milton in the 1-7A district championship game.
Milton, the 5th seed, nearly pulled off an amazing run to the title a night after stunning top seed Washington.
The Tigers earn a home game against Crestview to start the playoffs on Thursday.
Milton will travel to Choctaw, the state's top-ranked 7A team.
