Merry Double Overtime - 12/26/11

Coming into the Chatfield-Kingsland girl's basketball contest, one could've expected a good game. Both entered with 5-3 records. Chatfield entered 5-1 in conference play, the loss coming at the hands of Caledonia by 11. Kingsland entered even in league play (2-2), losses coming to Caledonia (by 4) and PEM (by 6). Chatfield beat the Bulldogs by 20. But the Gophers fell to Rochester-Lourdes by seven, a team the Knights beat by nine. They split last season's series (games decided by four and five points). Expecting a darn good game and getting what unfolded are two different things. It was a hard-fought defensive battle. Flash forward to one minute to go in regulation. An Erin Kammer driving lay-up gave the Goph's a 39-36 lead. Knight MacKenzie Marzolf then got fouled and made one of two FT's. Kingsland subsequently got a steal. Cheyenne Losey got a hoop (for the 39-39 tie) and-some-harm, but she couldn't convert on the free throw (for the lead). Marzolf, however, grabbed the offensive rebound, only for the Knights to turn the ball over, fouling Kammer simultaneously. She went to the line for a one-and-one with 10.9 second remaining. She missed the front end (for the lead), but Sarah Costello grabbed an offensive rebound, only to miss a desperation game-winning three-pointer. In OT #1, a pair of Costello FT's gave Chatfield a 43-41 lead with 41 ticks left, but Losey responded with a little lefty hook shot off the glass. Inbounding with 14 seconds, Chatfield was able to get the ball up the court, but they were forced to dribble under the basket and out-of-bounds as time expired. In OT #2, the Knights circumvented the battle each team had all game long with scoring from the field. They used the free throw stripe. A pair of Marzolf freebies gave the Knights a lead. Three Nicole Swanson FT's stoked the lead to five. Three more freebies capped an 8-0 second overtime period for the Knights, and won them a pivotal early season Three Rivers contest (51-43). Kingsland didn't attempt a FG in the final OT period, but they were 8 of 10 at the line. Chatfield was 0 for 8 from the field, 0-1 from the line. Losey led all scorers and rebounders with a strong 16 and 12 night (8 of 10 on 2-point shots). Swanson added 9 points, 5 rebounds, and a number of blocks (including a big one in the final OT). Lindsay Tart and McKayla Pruter both had eight. For Chatfield, Sidney Irish and Sarah Costello each had 11. MaKenzie Miller had 8 and a team-high 9 rebounds. Through the first ove .....
