A total team effort was not enough for the Fillies who dropped an 82-91 overtime thriller against the #14 Angelina Roadrunners Saturday, Jan. 26, in District 14 play.

In a game that saw over 20 lead changes and 15 ties, the Fillies entered the fourth quarter with a seven-point lead, which would reach as high 10. But the Roadrunners came roaring back and took the lead with four minutes left in the contest. The back and forth battle continued with both teams responding.

Maria Adashchyk hit a huge three-point bucket off of an offensive rebound with 1:56 left in the contest, giving the Fillies a two-point lead. But the Roadrunners responded with a bucket of their own, tying the game at 79. Both teams had the chance to score at the end of regulation, with neither team successful, sending the game into overtime.

Overtime kept the same pace as regulation with both teams battling on both ends. The first bucket in overtime did not come until the 2:10 mark when Angelina hit a 3 pointer, making the score 82-80. Another bucket for the Roadrunners followed with 1:37 left in overtime, making the score 70-84 Roadrunners.

Coming out of the timeout, Jolie Williams hit a three pointer, making the score 82-84, but the Roadrunners came back to hit a three of their own, bringing the lead to five with a little less than a minute left. The Roadrunners eventually iced the game.

The Fillies were led in scoring by freshman Jolie Williams who had 25 points off the bench. Maryia Adashchyk scored 22 points of her own in the contest. Riak and Nowakowska would round out the double digit scoring with 10 and 11 respectively. The Fillies’ bench outscored the Roadrunner’s  bench 40-25.
