Sherburne-Earlville 68, Bainbridge-Guilford 63 (2 OT)

SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville overcame a nine-point deficit to begin the fourth quarter, and outlasted Bainbridge-Guilford in double overtime, Saturday in the S-E Tournament championship game.

Tourney MVP Caitlynn Adams scored a career-high 30 points, and her steal and layup with 42 seconds left in the second extra period pushed the margin to 66-63. All-Tournament selection, Bridget Irwin, tacked on two late free throws, and Irwin just missed a triple-double, scoring 16 points, grabbing 14 rebounds, and dishing out nine assists. Adams added 13 boards.

“This game was kind of a test to see how we would respond to that type of situation (down nine points),” said S-E coach Karen Mulligan. “We kept digging in and digging in. Give B-G credit, they’re scrappy and tough.”

The Bobcats (2-2) shook off a slow start in which S-E grabbed an 18-9 first-quarter lead, and actually led 30-26 at halftime. Randi Conway and Corrine Riegel had three-pointers in the third quarter extending the lead to 45-36.

Conway led B-G with 19 points before fouling out. Riegel added 17, and Chelsi Rosa scored 15 points and pulled down 19 rebounds. Two other Bobcats fouled out during the overtime periods.
