Late rally lifts North girls over Tigers

The North Decatur girls basketball team handed visiting Lawrenceburg its first loss of the season, winning 71-59 Thursday night.

The Lady Chargers outscored the Lady Tigers 26-13 in a decisive fourth quarter.

Lawrenceburg (5-1) beat North by 16 last season. Despite trailing 15-14 after the first quarter Thursday, the Chargers refused to allow a repeat result.

North (5-2) went on a 7-1 run to capture a 21-16 lead less than halfway through the second quarter. Head coach Brad Bryant’s squad entered the half up 36-25, thanks to a 22-10 second-quarter advantage.

The game went in favor of the Tigers late in the third quarter. Following a Lawrenceburg run, North found its lead shrink to four at 45-41. A 3-pointer pulled the visitors to within one, and Lawrenceburg went ahead to close out the third period 46-45.

Foul trouble plagued the Tigers down the stretch. Senior Anna Wallpe tied the game on a free throw, but Lawrenceburg did not go away quietly. A pair of free throws, then an easy layup off a steal, put the Tigers ahead 50-46 less than two minutes into the fourth quarter. Wallpe, though, answered with a putback, and sophomore Mary Hughes tied it on a coast-to-coast score with 5:32 left.

The Tigers led one more time, with 5:12 to go. However, Hughes hit a pair at the foul line to tie it back up and North never looked back. Wallpe hit a pair at the stripe, and after a double-dribble called against Lawrenceburg, senior Andrea Volk scored on a pass from senior Abby Lamb to go up 56-52.

Lamb and Volk fueled the shift in momentum and eventual victory. Volk hit a big triple with 2:03 left that put North up 60-55, which is the closest the Tigers got the rest of the way. Volk went 4-for-4 from the stripe in the final two minutes.

Lamb, meanwhile, scored in a flurry as North’s defense broke Lawrenceburg’s resolve. Lamb scored six points in the final minute of the game, including four off turnovers.
