WILLIAMSPORT - Trailing by one point (41-40) with just under 2:30 remaining, the Williamsport Wildcats proceeded to score the final nine points of the game to get past the North Hagerstown Hubs 49-41 on Monday night in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League girls' basketball game.
Senior point guard Erin Gross and Jessica Rouse made a lay-up each to start the nine-point streak for Williamsport. After that, Carrie Weimer sank three of her four foul shots and Janet Richmond made both of her free throws to cap the hot spell and clinch the win for the Wildcats.
"I think at the end that we had more composure than they did," Williamsport coach Curtis Graff said. "We called a timeout when we were down by a point with about 2 1/2 minutes left. First of all, we talked about regaining our composure offensively during the timeout. I also told my players to be aggressive defensively."
