Hasuan Rivers capped the second-half rally with a layup at the buzzer to bring the Irmo fans who traveled all the way down I-20 something to cheer and remember for a long time.
Blythewood took a 48-47 lead with 33 seconds remaining after leading most of the whole game. Irmo had possession and held on for the last shot.

Raekwon Heath on the inbound found Hasuan Rivers under basket for a layup that bounced around and fell through giving Irmo the ticket to the State Championship Game.
Winton Hill led Irmo with 12 points and Rivers added 11.
