Spartans earn OT victory

By

Laconia 43, Ripon 37

Kelsey Birschbach and Karlie Huebschman scored 11 points each and the visiting Spartans (3-7) won in overtime.

Laconia outscored the Tigers 8-2 in the extra session with Haley Smith scoring four of those points to total nine on her night.

Birschbach also led the team with nine rebounds, and Smith came away with four steals.

“We were more aggressive the second half,” said Laconia coach Chris Morgan. “We were down by 13 at half and we just challenged the girls to pick up the defensive pressure, and we did that. Then we started making a few shots. And we took care of the ball.”
