Wolf hits free throws to lift Panthers over Wildcats

CROWN POINT — Amanda Wolf’s two free throws with 45 seconds left in the fourth quarter Thursday gave the Crown Point girls a 33-32 victory over Schroon Lake in Northern Basketball League play.

With two minutes left in regulation, the Wildcats held a 32-29 advantage.

But Brittany Foote was fouled with 1:15 remaining and made both free throws to bring the Panthers to within one.

Crown Point got the ball back, and Wolf was fouled. She hit both ends of the one-and-one to give the Panthers the 1-point victory.

“It was an intense and nail-biting game all the way to the final buzzer,” Crown Point coach Kevin Peters said. “Both teams played with very aggressive defense throughout the game.”

Schroon Lake led by as many as four points twice in the fourth quarter but couldn’t hang on.

Wolf led the Panthers with 14 points, followed by Heather Ryan with eight and Foote, seven.

Dakota Gadway paced the Wildcats with 10 points, and Julianna Finnerty was next with nine.
