Ayersville's and Kalida's seasons were hanging by a moment in Tuesday's Division IV sectional opener at Paulding High School. With the last seconds ticking away, Kalida 6-4 senior Austin Horstman put back an air-balled long fade-away jumper by teammate Devin Kortokrax with the Wildcats trailing 43-41. Horstman put the offensive rebound back up off the window and the ball momentarily hung on the rim before gravity took over and sent the ball through the hoop to force overtime.
