The Northeast Lady Vikings and the East Feliciana Lady Tigers were perfectly matched Friday in a close game that nearly went into double overtime.
Northeast outscored East Feliciana in the second and third periods, while the Lady Tigers led in the first and fourth.
It looked as though Northeast had the game won at 46-43 with less than 16 seconds remaining, but East Feliciana’s Kourtlin Bradford stunned with a 3-point shot, bringing the girls into overtime at 46-46.
With four minutes added to the scoreboard, the teams battled it out, the Lady Vikings staying within two points of the Lady Tigers.
With 34 seconds remaining, the Lady Tigers led 56-55, but that was plenty of time for Northeast to put two more on the board, leading 57-55.
Again, the Lady Vikings looked to have the game in the bag, but errors and a foul brought the match to 57-57 with 2.7 seconds remaining.
East Feliciana scored on a free throw to win 58-57.
Lady Viking top scorers included Pearl Jones with 22; Laurie Kight scoring 14; and Jada Snowden with 11 points on the night.
Next up, the NHS girls head to Dunham on Friday.
