Smyrna's Stedman Kpana converted a steal into a 2-handed dunk in the final minute to push his Eagles past Dover 56-50 Tuesday.

The Henlopen North battle featured a series of second half runs. Smyrna led 23-22 at the break, and pushed the advantage to 36-29 before Dover responded with a 17-2 spurt to go up 46-38 with six minutes remaining in the game.

Smyrna tied the game at 50 on a Kpana free throw with 1:38 remaining, and then reached out to steal a mid-court pass. The junior was left with a breakaway, and he launched into the air for the slam to put his team up 2.

Teammate Javon Hunter was then fouled, and made his first free throw. The second went off the rim, but Kpana was there for the putback and a 5-point lead. Smyrna would go on to score the last 9 points of the game.

Kpana led Smyrna (3-4, 2-3 Henlopen) with 15 points, while Latrelle Lee netted 12 and Hunter scored 10.

Terrence Woodlin paced Dover (1-6, 1-3) with 13 points.
