Two points — that’s all the Dukes boys were looking for Friday as the fourth quarter clock ran out. They didn’t find those points and the Firelands Falcons walked off the court with a 67-65 victory. Wellington outscored Firelands in the third and fourth periods but was never able to overcome an early deficit. Nick Denney led the Falcons with an amazing 29-point night and Colin Myers had 17 points. For the Dukes, Josh Kindel stepped up with 22 points.
