Jr. High girls win 3
Summitís junior high girls eked out three victories last week, dropping Lewis County for the second time this season, this time in a thriller, the local girls down two with two minutes to go, but managed a tie some time later at 18 to 18 with only seconds to go, when a shot lofted by Kayla Schumacher fell through shortly before the final gun, giving Summit a 20-18 win. The Patriots had fallen behind, being outscored by the Eagles 9-6 in the third quarter, but held the hosts to only one field goal in the fourth to eke out the win.
Earlier, the Summit 6th-7th took their second victory from the Eagles this year, this time pulling out to a relatively easy 18-6 win.
Thursday, in Grangeville against Sts. Peter and Paul, the local girls prevailed in one of the strangest games of the season, as both teams continually failed to hit the net. With the score tied 5-5 at the end of the third quarter, Sarah Chmelik proved to be the difference for the Patriots, as her five points, with a pressure free throw at the very end, all in the fourth, proved to be just enough to edge the Ravens who could counter with only four in the fourth. Final score, an amazing 10-9.
Action this week for the Patriots includes a game with Prairie on Tuesday, and a trip to Asotin Thursday. The win raises the Patriot 8th team to five and two, the losses coming in close games with Grangeville and Kamiah.
