CLEARFIELD -- They made it.
The 22 players trying to set a world record for the longest continuous basketball game stopped playing about 10 p.m. Friday, said Kurt Spencer, executive director for the Fallen Heroes Scholarship Foundation.
The old record of 107 hours was reached about 8 p.m. Friday and the game continued for another two hours, Spencer said.
But his work is far from over. He now has to compile documentation -- scorebooks, witness statements, log books, scrapbooks of media coverage, among other things -- to submit to the Guiness Book of World Records.
The game started Monday with 24 players but two dropped out due to injuries.
The game was a fund-raiser for the Fallen Heroes Scholarship Foundation, which will support higher education for family members of police, firefighters and members of the military killed in the line of duty.
Spencer said he won't know how much money the marathon game raised until early next week.
And, if you're wondering how many points are scored in a 109-hour basketball game, the final was Blue Team 11,689, White Team 9,765.
