Rebels win in last second

GOOSE LAKE — Preston led Northeast 57-56 with eight seconds left in overtime Tuesday night in a Big East Conference girls basketball game.

“I called a timeout and set up a play,” Northeast coach Charles Jargo said. “Like it often does, it didn’t go exactly like we wanted it to.”

The play was designed to get a shot for Northeast standout junior Addie Oberman.

“I set a screen for Addie and she was going to drive,” Northeast senior Catrina Jargo said. “Then she passed it to me. I was like, ‘Why are you passing it to me?’ So, I passed it right back to her. We swung the ball around. Then the crowd started yelling, ‘Shoot, shoot,’ because they were afraid we’d run out of time. I got the ball at the free-throw line and I thought about shooting there. But I took a dribble down the middle of the lane and banked it in.”

Catrina Jargo’s basket came with less than a second left and gave the Rebels a 58-57 win over Preston. She said she was excited and a little in shock after making the game-winner.

“I just stood there and the team huddled around me,” Catrina Jargo said. “Addie told me she gave me the ball because she had faith in me and I knew I could do it. That was very encouraging, especially because I didn’t feel like I had a great game.”

Jargo’s bucket gave her eight points for the game.

Northeast (3-1, 2-0 conference) lost its season opener in overtime and coach Jargo said he thought that helped the Rebels.

“We were lucky to have played overtime at West Branch,” he said. “Not that it gave us tons of confidence, but that helped us win this one. We made a couple of mistakes then, but tonight we kept working and attacking the paint. We’ve been through that experience before.”

Preston (2-1, 1-1) needed a comeback to force the game to overtime. The Trojans trailed 50-45 with one minute left in regulation before outscoring their hosts 6-1 in the final 60 seconds.

“We missed a couple free throws there,” coach Jargo said. “They got an offensive rebound and putback that really hurt us. You have to give them a lot of credit, but we let it get away at the end of regulation.”

Other than that last minute, the Rebels shot well from the free-throw line late in the game. Northeast went 16-of-21 on foul shots in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Ryleigh Keeney scored 13 of her team-high 17 points for Preston in the second half and overtime, including hitting three 3-pointers. Brooke Krogman (14), Cassie Aldis (13) and Lizzie Meier (10) also scored in double figures for Preston.

Preston also kept Oberman out of double figures. She scored nine for the Rebels.

“They played a diamond-and-1, which made it really touch for Addie,” coach Jargo said. “She also got in foul trouble. She had three in the first half and picked up her fourth in the third quarter, so she had to sit. To play without her and win was a big confidence boost for us.”

Picking up a lot of the scoring slack was 6-foot, 1-inch junior Breanne Butler. Butler scored 11 of her team-high 17 points in the second half and overtime.

“We needed a big game from Breanne and she delivered,” coach Jargo said. “She probably had double-figure rebounds, too. She is a real key to our team’s whole season. We need to keep establishing her. That makes it harder for other teams to concentrate on Addie and it opens up other girls.”

Northeast senior Morgan McAleer also reached double figures with points. She went 6-of-6 on free throws.
