Hamilton tops DSHA in overtime

Jan. 18, 2013

In a battle between unbeaten Greater Metro Conference powers, Sussex Hamilton staged a second-half rally and defeated Divine Savior Holy Angels in overtime, 39-37.

The Chargers went behind by a 25-14 count after DSHA's Maggie Novak hit a 3-pointer to open the second half, but Hamilton surged back on a 9-0 run and ultimately took a lead with 1:32 to play in the quarter. Junior guard Hannah Menzia scored 7 of her 9 points in that stretch.

Hamilton's Mackenzie Latt scored with 54 seconds to play to tie the game at 36, and DSHA held for the final shot, when Arike Ogunbowale (20 points) couldn't get a driving baseline shot to fall at the buzzer.

In the overtime, Tristen Hayes split free throws for the Chargers with 2:24 to go, and Taylor Klug emerged wide open under the hoop on an inbound from the baseline, scoring to make it 39-36 with 23 seconds to go.

The Dashers were sent to the free-throw line with less than 1 second to go, and Shaylan Reardon hit the first and intentionally missed the second, but Menzia scrambled to the rebound.

The team played without senior post Jenny Shernell, sidelined with a season-ending ACL injury. The Chargers also scored six straight points after Latt checked out midway through the third quarter with three fouls.
