Saturday morning high school sports: San Ramon Valley tops previously undefeated Dougherty Valley at the buzzer


SRV hands Dougherty Valley its first defeat

Leading by eight points with less than three minutes to play Friday night, San Ramon Valley found itself tied on the road against Dougherty Valley as the final seconds ticked off the clock.

Seamus Deely made sure there’d be no overtime.

The San Ramon Valley sophomore slid across the lane to rebound a teammate’s missed 3-pointer, turned, and shot.

The ball banked off the backboard and dropped through the hoop as time expired, giving SRV a 63-61 victory that left Dougherty Valley tasting defeat for the first time this season.

The winners improved to 8-2 overall and 2-0 in the East Bay Athletic League.

Dougherty Valley, ranked second by the Bay Area News Group, dropped to 14-1, 2-1.

No. 17 SRV seemed comfortably in control earlier in the fourth quarter, leading 59-51 with under three minutes to go.

But Dougherty Valley had a late run.
