DERRY — Casey Evans scored 12 of Londonderry's 15 fourth-quarter points, lifting the Lancers to a 44-40 victory over Pinkerton Academy in a matchup of top Division I girls' basketball teams.

Evans led all scorers with 24 points. Londonderry, playing without injured star Aliza Simpson, a UNH recruit, improved to 12-1. Pinkerton, which handed Londonderry its lone loss, 53-49 on Jan. 31, dropped to 10-2. Both teams trail Division I's only unbeaten team, Bedford.

Valerie Martin had 11 for the Astros. Kayla Stacy had 10 and Brandi Bonneau added nine.

Londonderry set out to slow down Pinkerton, forcing the Astros' offense to the outside. The Astros took mostly 3-pointers in the first half, missing most of them.

The Lancers led 21-17 at the half.

Pinkerton led 31-29 after three.

But in the final quarter, Evans took the game on her shoulders, using her size inside against a mismatched Pinkerton defense.

The Lancers led by as many as seven points in the fourth, but Pinkerton sliced the lead down to three with five seconds remaining. Bonneau attempted a 3-pointer to tie the game but missed. Evans got the rebound, was fouled and hit one of two free throws to salt the contest.
