Free throw shooting proved to be the difference in the game as the Brandon-Evansville girls edged out Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley Tuesday night 42-39.

Free throw shooting proved to be the difference in the game as the Brandon-Evansville girls edged out Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley Tuesday night 42-39.

"We were 17-23 from the free throw line, they were 6-9," said Charger head coach Dick Simpson. "They outscored us from the field, we outscored them from the line."

Heather Strese helped the Chargers win their sixth straight game as she poured in 20 points, including 12 of 16 free throws, then pulled down 14 rebounds.

"We had a good first half, but kind of went flat in the second half," said Simpson. "We couldn't seem to score and we saw an 18-point lead go down to six, then to four, and then to two. Our last four points of the game were free throws by Heather."

Strese put the Chargers ahead for good as she hit a pair of free throws with 1:29 remaining on the clock and her team leading 38-36. She was fouled again with just 11 seconds remaining and hit the final two points of the game from the free throw line.

HANCOCK 56, WCA 43

The West Central Area girls' basketball team ran into the fifth-ranked team in Class A last Thursday night and came up short in a 56-43 game against Hancock.

The Owls improved to 7-1 on the season and handed the Knights their second straight loss. Jen Froemming led WCA with 20 points, four steals and five rebounds.

"Overall, I am really happy with how our girls played," head coach Beth Hanson said. "At times, we looked good as we were able to bring the game back to within five points. We need to work on the little things. We gave up too much and gave Hancock some long runs. Even though the end result is now what we all want, I am happier with the girls' performance."

Froemming was the only Knights' player in double figures. Danna Sabolik had six points and Kelsey Hammer led the team with five assists.

"Danna Sabolik came off the bench for us and had an incredible game," Hanson said. "She came in and did exactly what we asked of her...Kelsey Hammer had a very nice game for us. She had a great defensive game and showed very strong leadership skills."
