Marietta - Olivia Alloway went coast-to-coast to score the game-winner.
The 5-foot-10 junior’s buzzer-beating layup after Marietta High had tied the score enabled Warren High to down the Tigers, 76-74, in double overtime Wednesday night in a prep girls basketball game at Sutton Gymnasium.
“I knew that we deserved to win, and somebody got hurt (Alex Frazee) tonight, and I wanted to win it for her,” said Alloway, who finished with a team-high 24 points.”
Warren, No. 6 in Ohio Division II with a 17-1 record, extended its winning streak to 16. Abbie Smith added 18 points, while Molly Grayson netted 12. Sommer Saboley and Millie Ryan each chipped in with eight markers while Emme Bowe had six.
“I think every game we play here is down to the wire,” said WHS head coach Amy Colgrove. “So, we knew coming in, it was going to be that same way. They (Tigers) play hard. I’m proud of our girls.
“It didn’t come easy, losing Alex (Frazee) early, and we had a lot of people in foul trouble.”
Marietta (11-7) had a monster performance by Morgan Altenburger, who tallied a game-high 32 points. Hannah Kroft added 15 while Jennifer Smith had 14. Jessica Smith netted nine.
