Camanche advances

CAMANCHE — It was as if the Northeast Rebels were witnessing the same nightmare they had a month and 10 days ago.

Seven seconds to go. Score tied at 48 between Northeast and Camanche. Camanche is working the ball around, trying to get Kylie Vogel open on the right side of the floor on a backdoor screen to the basket.

Brettan Hilgendorf finds herself open with the ball near the top of the arc. Just under two seconds to go.

She has to put a shot up to avoid overtime.

Hilgendorf’s shot went in, and the Indians advanced to the Class 3A Region 6 championship game Saturday against Mediapolis in Wilton with the 50-48 win.

The teams met twice before this season. The Rebels won the first meeting 39-33 on Dec. 9, while the Indians won their home game Jan. 10 in similar fashion to Wednesday’s game.

Both head coaches, Chas Jargo (Northeast) and Camanche’s Danny Vogel, have respect for one another’s program. Each coach knew that this was going to be a nailbiter throughout.

Northeast’s biggest problem early was Breanne Butler being in foul trouble. She fouled out in the final two minutes but had three fouls in the first half, which led to some Rebels having to step up. And they did, but not for a while when it mattered most.

“We make some big plays, and then we turn the ball over and they capitalize, and next thing you know, it’s a tie game,” Vogel said.

Camanche did have a 40-32 lead at the end of the third quarter, and even led 46-43 with 1:30 remaining with the Rebels having two fouls to give before the Indians were in the bonus.

However, Northeast chipped away thanks to an Addie Oberman three-point possession that included a putback layup off a missed free throw in a quarter where the Rebels scored 16 points.
