Mohawk holds on for win
Mohawk (37) Vs. Riverside (35)
Feb 04, 2014
The Lady Warriors led by nine points with 1:55 to play and held on for the Section 2-AA home win over the Lady Panthers.

The loss eliminates Riverside (5-6, 8-10) from playoff contention.

The Lady Panthers drained a pair of 3-pointers to cut into the margin with under a minute to go, but Mohawk was able to hold on. The Lady Warriors had four team fouls with a two-point lead and about six seconds to play.

Mohawk fouled with five seconds remaining and once more with one tick to go. Riverside had to inbound the ball on the side just beyond its own baseline.

“That’s a tough place to try and score down two points without a timeout left,” Lady Warriors coach Mike O’Lare said. “It’s a great win. Riverside has been playing very well. They were playing for a playoff spot and this was their season.

“To our kids’ credit, we had to refocus. We just tried to get back to those fundamental basics.”

Samantha Carr collected 17 points and five rebounds to lead the Lady Warriors. Aliya Gage also snared five rebounds.

“Sam had a very good offensive game. But we won the game because of our team defense,” O’Lare said.

Natalie Pritts paced the Lady Panthers with 12 markers.
