Third time’s a charge for Bobcats

OXFORD – Bainbridge-Guilford set the stage for a “repeat Saturday” in the Midstate Athletic Conference basketball championships Saturday afternoon.

The Bobcats, like the season before, avenged the regular-season outcomes to defeat Unatego in the final a second time in as many years, 49-44.

Jennifer Patten and Nicole Conway each were good on four foul shot attempts in the last two minutes to surge past the Spartans, who entered the game with an 18-1 record.

“We work on free throws every day in practice,” summed up Patten, who showed little nerves hitting the game-tying and go-ahead freebies. “We knew we had to be aggressive, and everyone stepped up their games.”

It was B-G’s third Midstate Athletic Conference title and fourth overall league championship under 16th-year head coach Bob Conway. Conway said the biggest difference between Saturday’s game and the near-miss at B-G earlier this season was Patten’s presence on the floor. In that game, the senior 1,000-point scorer sat substantial minutes with foul trouble in the second half.
