Hagerman 70, Horseshoe Bend 67 (2 OT)
HORSESHOE BEND — A crazy back-and-forth game ended in favor of the Pirates after two extra periods had to be played on Saturday.
Each team jumped to a solid lead, with Horseshoe Bend taking a 24-12 lead after one quarter and a 35-21 lead into halftime. However, Hagerman outscored the Mustangs 24-5 in the third frame to grab a five-point advantage.
Even after the final quarter and a period of overtime, the Pirates scored nine points to Horseshoe Bend’s six in the second overtime to head home with a win.
“It was an outstanding game,” assistant coach Katie Knight said.
Senior Alana Floyd did it all, scoring 25 points, grabbing nine rebounds, dishing out five assists and notching four blocks. Fellow senior Elly Yore scored 16 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, while another senior, Marina Acuna, scored 12 points and added 17 rebounds. Freshman Sadie Wadsworth added 10 points for Hagerman.
Knight noted that Horseshoe Bend’s Jade Warren scored 39 points, but fouled out late, which was a key moment for the Pirates, even though Yore, who had covered her all game, fouled out moments later.
The assistant coach said getting to the free throw line and grabbing offensive rebounds were two vital successes for the Pirates late in the game. Hagerman (5-0) will play its first home game of the season against Camas County on Tuesday.
