The 2A Grant Union girls were down to the wire in the final 8 minutes of their Tuesday, Dec. 12, preseason home debut against 3A Burns.

With 43 seconds left in the game, Prospector Kaylee Wright tied the score 33-33 with a two-point bucket.

Hilander Mileah Skunkcap went 1-2 at the free-throw line, sinking the 34-33 winning shot.

Burns stepped up their defensive pressure, and Grant Union’s final attempts didn’t fall.

“We let that one get away,” said Grant Union head coach Casey Hallgarth.

He said several easy shots were missed, but the team will take lessons from the game, and they’ll work on preseason adjustments.

“It’s a good learning moment for our kids,” he said. “We’ve got to move on. We’ve got to play again.”

Grant Union will host the 2A Weston-McEwen TigerScots at 6 p.m. Friday.

The TigerScots have a 2-5 record and the Lady Pros are 3-1.
