Camanche advances


After that play, both teams traded shots and possessions.

Back to Hilgendorf having the ball with just seconds remaining. She had two baskets before the final shot. After a few rattles around the rim with a packed gym watching, Hilgendorf made it three.

“It was nice that the ball bobbled in,” Hilgendorf said with a smile. “It was nervewracking. I am so glad we get to advance.”

The Indians won in nearly the same fashion that they beat the Rebels in their most recent meeting. On Jan. 10, Rebels guard Libby Schnoor hit a game-winning shot as time expired against the Rebels. In that instance, it left the Rebels walking off the court with a grimace.

On Wednesday, most walked off in misty-eyed disbelief.

“Not again,” Jargo said. “It was another really good game; we’ve played a ton of games like these against Camanche. Just didn’t go our way.”

Jargo saidresiliency carried the Rebels the past couple of weeks, especially in the near-comeback Wednesday.

“Our girls don’t know how to quit,” Jargo said. “We were behind a lot of games the last three weeks, and we came back and won most of them. The last time out, we thought we could get it, and, unfortunately, it didn’t go our way.”

The thing that hurt Northeast the most in Jargo’s mind was allowing Camanche guard Kylie Vogel to score 17 points.

“We allowed her to go off,” Jargo said. “You gotta give her credit, she didn’t want to lose her last game on her home floor, but we didn’t find her as well as we did in the first two games.”

Northeast held Vogel to four points in each of the Dec. 3 and Jan. 10 games.

Hilgendorf didn’t hit just one buzzer-beater — she also got a layup right before the horn sounded at the end of the second quarter.
