HANOVERTON OH- United is getting better day by day, and Monday they welcomed in a tough Crestview Rebels team to measure where they were at. You didn’t need a measuring stick to quantify the grit, and fight of the Eagles as they walked away with a thrilling 49-48 win in OT.
The game was tightly contested from top to buzzer, and towards the end it seemed like United was going to win in regulation. Crestview’s Krista Perry had other plans though as she hit a shot at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.
In the extra frame with three seconds left, and trailing by one, Madison Kibler went to the free throw line and knocked in two foul shots to give United the lead, and eventually the win.
Kibler led the Eagles with 11 points. Two other players were in double figures as senior Destiny Hill, and Colby Burton both contributed 10.
Krista Perry was her high scoring self, leading the Rebels with a game-high 25.
United will move on to play at East Canton on Wednesday, while the Rebels make a trip to Campbell.
