Bow victory

LITCHFIELD — Campbell High of Litchfield looked like the superior team for the first three quarters of Tuesday night’s Division III girls’ basketball game against Bow, but the final eight minutes belonged to the Falcons.

Bow, which trailed by 13 points late in the third quarter, outscored Campbell 17-5 in the fourth quarter, and that was good enough to produce a 43-39 victory.

“I thought that if we kept it in single digits we were in good shape,” Bow coach Bill Vermette said, “We were fortunate. We got ourselves into a good situation at the stripe, and that’s what turned it around,”

Bow, which returned two starters from last year’s Division III championship team, scored 11 points from the free throw line in the fourth. The Falcons took the lead for good when senior forward Madeleine Horner made two free throws that broke a 38-38 tie with 3:18 to play.

“We knew coming in this was going to be a test,” Campbell coach Robert Allan said. “They knocked down their shots when they needed to knock down their shots, and we didn’t. His plan was better than ours. Of course there’s disappointment. This just makes us want it that much more.”

Bow’s Kirsten Bresson, a senior guard, led all scorers with 14 points. Senior guard Ashlie Tucker added nine for Bow, which raised its record to 10-3.

Campbell suffered its first loss and fell to 8-1. Junior guard Kylie Julia led the Cougars with 12. Classmate Kaylie Trunca finished with 10.

Campbell used a 15-0 run to build a 21-9 lead in the first half.

“It was maybe just a matter of time before they figured out our press,” Vermette said. “I think they solved that, and we got sloppy with the basketball.”

Campbell led 25-16 at halftime and 34-26 entering the fourth, but the Cougars scored one point in the final 6:01.

“We’ve been stuggling all year to find an identify for ourselves, because this year’s team is so much different than last year’s,” Vermette said. “(This victory) goes a long way for us.”
