AUGUSTA – Evan Worster scored a game-high 33 points and the Forest Hills boys basketball team rallied from a 19-point second half deficit to upset top-seeded Hyde 61-60 in the Western D championship game Saturday afternoon at the Civic Center.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Worster, who scored 21 points in the second half.

The No. 2 Tigers (18-3) trailed 42-23 with 2:28 left in the third quarter but out-scored the Phoenix 38-18 the rest of the way.

Worster scored the go-ahead basket with 7.9 seconds left then added a pair of free throws to ice it.

Matt Turner scored 14 points and Derick Ouellette added seven for Forest Hills.

Tyquan Ekejiuba led Hyde with 15 points, including a 3-pointer as time expired.
