Written by WorkerBee on December 5, 2011
Tonight the lady Ishpeming Hematites hosted the Manistique Emeralds hoping for their first win of the season in their home opener. Four quarters was not enough to determine a victor tonight but the Hematites came up short in overtime losing 45-39.
In a tale of two halves, the Emeralds came out flying first, leading 24-5 at half, with the Hematites only shooting 2 for 22 and not even registering a field goal in the second quarter.
The second half though was all Hematites, outscoring the Emeralds 13-2 in the third quarter. The lady Hematites kept chipping away at Manistique’s lead until there was .4 seconds left for a free throw that tied the game 33-33.
From there, into overtime, where the Hematites actually held their first lead of the game, but were not able to hold on losing for the final of 45-39
The Hematite girls next take on Gladstone Braves on Thursday, December 8th in Gladstone. Pregame will be 6:45PM and tip off will be at 7:15PM right here on WRUP 98.3FM.
