The Bradshaw Mountain girls overcame a sluggish start, coming from behind in regulation to send the game into overtime and pull out a one-point win after capitalizing on their late, clutch free-throw shooting and rebounding.
"It was a hard-fought game, and by far the best experience I've ever been a part of (as a coach)," Bears coach Efren Badilla said. "We showed so much determination and heart to win this game."
Kylie Morris guided Bradshaw, notching a double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds.
Aiding in the effort were Kirsten Smith, who scored 14 points, as well as Dacie Clark and Jessica Olivas, who had eight points each. Clark also pulled down eight boards.
The Bears trailed 13-3 at the end of the first period, 22-17 at halftime and 36-28 at the end of the third before outscoring FHS 17-9 in the fourth to send the game into OT tied at 45-45.
In the extra session, the contest went back and forth until Bradshaw claimed the one-point edge, 56-55, and killed the clock.
"Flagstaff played a very good game," Badilla said. "I give them a lot of credit, but we came together as a team."
The Bears (5-1 overall) face Flagstaff on the road at 5:30 p.m. next Tuesday.
