Clutch free throws by Rogers, Hill lift Lady Hornets frosh


PEARCY — With the game tied 15-15 with :34.9 left in the game, Bryant freshman Kendal Rogers coolly stepped to the free-throw line and drained a tiebreaker. And, after a timeout by the Lady Hamilton Lady Wolves, she went back and swished a second shot.

Moments later, she rebounded the miss on a Lady Wolves’ shot and was fouled again. And once more, she converted despite a timeout between shots to give the Lady Hornets a 19-15 lead.

Hannah Blocker hit a free throw for Lake Hamilton with :05.1 showing but when she missed the second Riley Hill rebounded and was fouled. Hill’s free throw with :02.7 showing made it a two-possession lead and enabled the Lady Hornets to secure the win, 20-19, despite Blocker’s 3-pointer at the buzzer.
