AnnArbor.com Washtenaw County Scoreboard
Ann Arbor Skyline evened its record at 1-1 thanks to a fast start, which saw Skyline jump out to a 27-5 lead and never look back en route to victory.
It was a great way to exit for senior Allison Young, who played her final varsity competition Friday night. The Skyline senior has to have shoulder surgery on Tuesday, ending her final season just as it got started.
"We have a senior who has played in every varsity game," Skyline coach Keith Wade said. "We kind of honored her tonight. She played last year with her shoulder popping in and out. Allison thought she was going to make it through the season and she still tried to fight it, but eventually doctors convinced her to have the surgery. It's scheduled for next week, so this was her last game."
Young played but did not score in the contest, as teammate Janae Sims led the way with 18 points. Anita Vandermuelen had 13 points, eight rebounds and seven steals.
Saline rallied from seven points down with three minutes to play on the back of a full-court press which forced several turnovers in the final minutes.
The Hornets rattled off nine points in the final three minutes off of fast-break shots created by those turnovers, tying the game at 36 to force overtime.
Then, with the two teams still tied and less than two minutes remaining in overtime, Saline's Jess Barnes made a basket and was fouled. Barnes completed the three-point play with a free throw, and Saline never trailed again.
Melissa Needham led Saline with 10 points, and Caitlin Ellis added eight.
Dexter senior Makenzie Svihra had 12 points and senior Riley McDonald had 11. "MacKenzie does a great job organizing our team and Riley is a four-year starter on our team," Dexter coach Mike Bavineau said. "They both do a great job every night, even on nights when their scoring line doesn't show it."
Jaslynn Rollins led the Railsplitters with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Arie Cargor had 14 points and five assists, and Dominique Foley added 13 points and seven assists.
"Cargor did a great job managing the game for us," Ypsilanti Lincoln coach Mike Foley said. "She was our leader and she really did a great job leading our team to two consecutive victories."
Jackie Oestreich recorded a double-double and Ann Arbor Greenhills held a one-point lead after three quarters, but the Gryphons were outscored 17-7 in the fourth.
"We just got tired," Greenhills coach Rachel Cortis said. "You do all that preseason running, but until you get into that game conditioning you are not really ready. They have a deeper bench and it got to us in the end."
Ottawa Lake-Whiteford (1-1) built a 26-16 edge at halftime before Greenhills surged back with a 15-point third quarter to nose ahead 32-31.
Oestreich's 21 points and 14 rebounds catalyzed the Gryphons' comeback effort, with Hagra Bhurgi contributing eight points to the cause.
