PEDRO — In order to win this game, the St. Joseph Flyers were going to need some big plays.

They got them.

The Flyers got some key points from Justin Mahlmeister, Hunter Pemberton and Joseph Payton as they outlasted the Rock Hill Redmen 61-57 in overtime Saturday.

“Justin hit two big shots back-to-back and the young guys stepped up,” said Flyers’ coach Jeremy Williams.

The Flyers were down by seven points with less than two minutes to play despite 7 points by Payton and 6 from Eli Lewis in the quarter.

Mahlmeister made a basket and then drained a 3-pointer with 15 seconds left to tie the game and force the overtime.
