A packed house was on hand to cheer tonight’s neighborhood rivalry basketball game between the Natomas High Nighthawks and Inderkum Tigers.
The highly anticipated on-court duel is scheduled to be the featured game-of-the week on KCRA Channel 3 tonight. (Viewer votes won the game the spot on the High School Playbook segment.)
The standing-room-only crowd filled the gymnasium at Inderkum High School.
Natomas player Leroy Abraham hit a buzzer beater at the half, sending the Nighthawks over the Tigers 33-24. The Tigers refused to back down in the fourth quarter, but the Nighthawks kept the lead, winning the game 79-64.
Earlier in the evening, the varsity girls teams faced off. Girls’ final score: Inderkum 54, Natomas High 41.
