Calling it a Christmas miracle might be a bit much.
Still, what the Staunton River boys basketball team did in its game with Liberty last Saturday comes close.
The Eagles surmounted a 19-point deficit in topping the visiting Minutemen by the score of 66-64.
The win will likely be considered one of the biggest in the history of Staunton River basketball. And it came by a team with no player over 6' tall. It is certainly the top win in the seven years this reporter has been covering the Eagles.
