Lady Chargers take Civil War in OT

In a back-and-forth game for the right to take home the traveling trophy, the North Decatur girls basketball team defeated South Decatur 65-61 in overtime.

The Civil War game started with South grabbing a 14-12 lead after the first quarter. North, though, grabbed a 13-8 edge in the second quarter and led 25-22 at the half.

The score alternated throughout the second half as neither team led by more than four points in the fourth quarter. South went ahead 38-26 on a score by senior Julia Miller, assisted by junior Megan Niese. North senior Anna Wallpe tied it, but South freshman Brooke Helms put South ahead 40-38. Wallpe and Miller exchanged baskets before Helms hit a 3-pointer to put South ahead 46-42 late in the fourth.

North senior Abby Lamb, though, answered with her own triple near the 2-minute mark. A foul enabled North senior Emma Geis to put the Chargers ahead 47-46 with a pair of free throws. A Miller steal, however, led to another Helms triple, giving South a 49-47 edge.

Following a timeout by head coach Brad Bryant, Wallpe tied it back up at 49-all with less than 30 seconds left. North rebounded an attempt by South, forcing overtime.

Several Lady Chargers stepped up at the foul line in overtime. Notably, Hughes shot 5-for-6 and Geis shot 4-for-6.

The game featured four career-high scorers. Anna Wallpe scored a career-high 20 points. Lamb scored a personal-best 16 points, Geis scored a career-best 10.

For South, Helms scored a career-high 13 points. Leading South was Miller with 18 points. Senior Ashley Johannigman scored 16, including five in overtime. Stacy Fox scored eight, while senior Courtney Billingsley (four) and junior Sydney Callahan (2) rounded out the scoring.

North sophomore Mary Hughes scored nine points for the Lady Chargers. Hughes shot 7-for-8 from the line overall. Senior Alison Wallpe scored six points and senior Andrea Volk added four.
