Joseph girls rally to nip Mustangs

Top-ranked Eagles overcome cold first half to win in overtime

Entering Thursday’s Class 1A state girls quarterfinal Joseph and Crane were ranked one and two in the latest poll.

Top-ranked Joseph, the defending 1A champion, had all it could handle from second-ranked Crane before pulling out a 49-44 overtime win in the Baker High School gym.

Joseph’s Paige Bailey, the Old Oregon League player of the year, drained a three-point basket with two seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 40-40 and set up the extra period.

The teams remained tied at 44-44 with 2:04 left in overtime. Anna Bird then hit a layin off a backdoor cut to give Joseph the lead for good at 46-44 with 1:51 left.

Crane then missed a tying attempt with 33 seconds left and Joseph grabbed the rebound. Shelby Harshman was fouled with 21.8 seconds left and hit both free throws for a 48-44 cushion.

Crane then turned the ball over and had to foul again with 7.2 seconds left. Bailey hit 1 of 2 free throws for the final margin.

The Eagles shot 59 percent from the field in the second half (10-of-17) and 75 percent in overtime (3-of-4). That was far better than the 15 percent they shot in the first half where they trailed 20-9 at halftime.

Crane rode the 10 points and 11 rebounds of September O’Crowley to its halftime cushion. O’Crowley also had four steals.

Joseph still trailed Crane 29-19 entering the fourth quarter. The Eagles then outscored the Mustangs 21-11 to knot the game. Bailey and Nicke Parks each scored eight points in the period.

Parks led Joseph with 25 points.

O’Crowley topped Crane with 16 points and 17 rebounds.

Joseph plays Country Christian in the semifinals today at 1:30 p.m. Crane played Hosanna Christian in the consolation semifinals this morning.
