"It's a big win for us," Hinton coach David May said.
Both teams got off to a good start and after the several lead changes, the score was tied 15-15 at the end of the first quarter.
After the break, the Blackhawks initially could not match the intensity they had shown in the first half. Turnovers allowed the Mustangs to chip away at their opponent's lead.
At the end of the third period, Newell-Fonda had caught up with Hinton and pulled ahead by a point, 43-42.
With a score of 56-56 and 12 seconds left on the clock, the Blackhawks had the ball and went on the attack.
But instead of seizing the opportunity to take the lead, Hinton turned the ball over and got called on a foul with just 2.8 seconds left to go.
The Mustangs made the first free throw but missed the second one.
The Blackhawks grabbed the rebound and immediately called a timeout.
With the game on the line, Hinton threw a long pass into Newell-Fonda territory. It landed in the hands of Jason Vander Kooi, who had to take a contested shot that did not go in.
Just as the final buzzer sounded, Jurgensmeier elevated underneath the basket, grabbed his teammate's missed shot and put it into the hoop.
"We drew up a play where we had two screens, one for Jurgensmeier and one for Jason Vander Kooi," May said. "I gave Morgan Wenzel two options what he could do, and he chose to go to Jason. He missed the shot but Logan put it in."
The Hinton players celebrated, the crowd roared, but there was still some controversy whether Jurgensmeier had gotten the shot off in time.
After seconds that seemed like ages, the referees declared that the basket would count.
The Blackhawks had won the game by one point, 58-57.
Celebrating a win in his final home game, senior Vander Kooi jumped across the floor in celebration, and his teammates joined in.
After the game, the Hinton coach said he thought the Blackhawks had a rough second half against the Newell-Fonda team.
"We made a lot of mistakes, but the kids hung in there," May said. "They came through ready to play at the end and won the game."
Jurgensmeier finished the night with a team-high 25 points, followed by Vander Kooi with 12. Vander Kooi and Morgan Wenzel each had four assists.
Jurgensmeier and Wenzel led their team defensively with seven rebounds each.
With the win, Hinton's record improves to 10-7.
"We have two games left in the regular season. We'll for sure have a winning record and that is big for the players," May said.
The Blackhawks will face West Sioux in an away game tonight (Friday).
