GATLINBURGIn a tight game on the road, experience matters.

A number of Cocke County seniors rose to the occasion in the final seconds in Thursday night's tight 59-58 win at Gatlinburg-Pittman.

Trailing by three points in the final seconds, Cocke County shooting guard Hunter Suggs tied the game with 6.2 remaining on the clock. Kimbel Thornton then forced a Gatlinburg-Pittman turnover, leading to a steal by Dylan Dockery who iced the game at the free-throw line.

Dockery's free-throw with with just over one second remaining was enough to give Cocke County the win and knock the Highlanders from the ranks of the unbeatens.

"Any road win, especially early in the season, is very good," Cocke County coach Ray Evans said. "Neither team got in a flow, it was a physical game and a hard-fought game on both ends and it really came down to luck there at the end."
