Class 4A Sectional 14 at East Central - Semifinals
East Central 68, Martinsville 62 (2OT) - Eagle Country 99.3 Feature Game - The Trojans fell behind early and trailed 26-18 at halftime, but they outscored Martinsville 14-6 in the third quarter to even the game. Kyla Maxwell's last second layup swung the momentum in the Trojans favor. Both teams went back-and-forth in the fourth quarter. With less than 10 seconds left in regulation, Josie Trabel stole the ball near midcourt and took it all the way for the go-ahead score. With 4.9 seconds left, Martinsville senior Pa'Shence Walker dribbled the length of the floor and was fouled. She calmly nailed both free throws to send the game to overtime. The Artesians would gain control in the first overtime, but the Trojans battled back with Laney Baker making a last second layup to put the game into double overtime. East Central outscored Martinsville 10-4 in the second overtime to get the dramatic win. Hope Fox led all scorers with 25 points. Josie Trabel added 21 and Kyla Maxwell chipped in with 7.
