Rewatch the game

The Lady Warriors forced the extra session when Aslyn Pry, who scored a game-high 20 points and was named the Allegheny Grille of Foxburg Player of the Game, nailed a 3-pointer with about 44 seconds left in regulation.

Clarion had a couple of chances to win the game at the end of regulation.

With 4.3 seconds to play, Pry blocked a shot by Noel Anthony with the ball going to Clarion out of bounds. On the inbounds, Catherine Kelly tied up Anthony with the possession arrow to Clarion. On the ensuing inbounds, Ava Cherico got a good look at a 3-pointer that was just a little short as time expired.

Then in overtime, Jewart hit a jumper to give Moniteau its first lead since the second quarter and then hit another 3-pointer to make the score 47-42, a lead the Lady Warriors never relinquished.

Clarion led by 13, 36-23, following a 3-pointer by Cherico late in the third quarter, but Pry helped rallied the Lady Warriors to within eight, 38-30, at the end of the quarter.
