A back-and-forth game came down to the closing seconds Saturday afternoon, with Hills-Beaver Creek junior Linae Elbers hitting a lay-up off an inbounds pass with four seconds to go, lifting the Patriots to a 49-47 win over Red Rock Central in Lamberton.

RRC held a two-point halftime lead, thanks largely to hot outside shooting. The Falcons knocked down five three-pointers in the opening half.

In the second half, RRC turned to its seniors, with DeCock and Sondra Rindfleisch accounting for all but two of the Falcons’ points in the final 18 minutes.

Down the stretch, a bucket by Rindfleisch tied the game at 47-47. The game stayed tied for nearly the entire final minute. With six seconds left, HBC had an inbounds play under the basket, with the 6-2 Elbers catching a lob and laying in the game-winning shot.

DeCock led RRC with 18 points. Rindfleisch added 15 points in the loss.

Emily DeCock added four three-pointers in the second half, as the Falcons were able to pull away late.

DeCock scored all of her team-high 18 points in the second half. Sondra Rindfleisch and Alyssa Cowan each added eight points.
