BANGOR — Tyler Kohl’s runner with 26 seconds left in the second overtime proved to be the game-winner as Central Connecticut survived tying 3-pointers by Maine’s Sergio El Darwich at the end of regulation and the first overtime to take a 93-90 victory on Saturday.

El Darwich also had a 3-pointer to tie the game at 89-all with a minute left in the second overtime but he missed three free throws in the extra period, including 1 of 2 with 10 seconds remaining, which would have tied the game.

Kohl finished with a career-high 33 points for the Blue Devils (6-6). El Darwich finished with four 3-pointers and 26 points, both career highs, for the Black Bears (2-11).
