Clintonville senior Nicole Seefeldt checked back into the game with 2 minutes and 51 seconds left as Shawano’s Carrie Young hit a free throw to put the Hawks up by four points.
On the next possession, Seefeldt drained a 3-pointer from the top of the key to swing the momentum to the Truckers, who escaped Shawano with their first win of the season Saturday, 55-53.
“She doesn’t hit that 3, I don’t know if we win the game,” Clintonville head coach Nick Yaeger said before thinking it over.
“We don’t win the game,” he clarified.
Clintonville senior Catherine Morse, who tallied a game-high 33 points, posted six of her team’s final seven points to hold off the Hawks, who were playing without four of the top six players.
Yaeger could not have been happier for Morse, who willed the team to the victory.
“She deserves this win more than anybody,” Yaeger said.
