Bravettes rally past THS girls
The Tonganoxie girls looked well on their way to snapping a three-game losing skid Tuesday at Bonner Springs — but then the fourth quarter arrived.
The Bravettes, whose offense had slumped during the second and third quarters, closed the game on a 20-9 run and edged the Chieftains, 48-47.
The game was tied at 14-14 after the first quarter, but THS build a five-point lead at halftime. The lead reached double digits by the end of the third quarter and Tonganoxie appeared to be on cruise control before Bonner Springs made a furious comeback.
Emily Wilson led Bonner Springs with 11 points.
Jenny Whitledge paced THS with 16 points, Lauren Hall scored 11 and Andie Jeannin added 10.
