PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Warrior girls rally for NECC win

Scuffling Westview gets its first win of 2012-13 in front of home crowd.

EMMA — Sometimes, a struggling young team needs a gut-check win to build some confidence.

The Westview girls basketball team got just such a win at home Friday night, blowing a seven-point fourth-quarter lead, rallying to force overtime, and then prevailing, 59-56 over Prairie Heights in the Warriors’ NECC opener at the Warrior Dome.

It was just the kind of win Westview coach Randy Yoder had been looking for.

“We knew coming into the season that we were going to have a tough early stretch,” Yoder said. “I hope this win tonight jump-starts our season.”

The Warriors (1-3 overall, 1-0 NECC) got out to a 22-12 second-quarter lead before the Panthers (3-1, 0-1) rallied with a 16-4 run over the remainder of the half to take a 28-26 lead into the locker room.

A see-saw battle in the third quarter saw the stanza end with the Warriors clinging to a slim 40-38 advantage, and it was in the opening minutes of the final frame that Westview got out to a seven-point advantage at 47-40.

But the Panthers tied it midway through the quarter and had an excellent chance to win it in regulation, with several shots that would not fall in the closing seconds.

The overtime belonged to the Warriors.

Maria McCoy had 21 points for Westview. Grace Hales had 10 and Amber Roth and Brooke Yoder added eight apiece.

Rebekah Frey had 25 points to lead all scorers for Heights.

Prairie Heights coach Kevin Frey said he felt his team defended the Warriors’ bigs well.

“We were concerned with Westview’s height,” Frey said.

Westview returns to action Tuesday night at home against Northridge. Prairie Heights hosts Wawasee today at 2:30.

Westview was a 51-13 winner in the J.V. contest. Katelyn Warren led Westview with 14 points.
