McCOMB 67
LEIPSIC 66
LEIPSIC — Ahead by as many as 13 points in the first half, McComb survived a second-half Leipsic rally for a 67-66 win Thursday in the Blanchard Valley Conference opener for both teams.
Haley Gerten’s 20-footer from the right wing skimmed off the front of the rim as time expired dashing the hopes for a miracle finish by Leipsic, which outscored McComb 37-28 in the second half.
Emily Clymer scored 22 points for McComb (2-0, 1-0 BVC), which led 39-29 at halftime. Caelie Reed added 16 points that included five 3-pointers for the Panthers.
Gerten finished with a game-high 28 points and eight rebounds to lead Leipsic. Amber Gerdeman added 19 points and matched Gerten with eight rebounds. Maddie Steffan chipped in 10 points for the Vikings.
After chipping away at the McComb lead throughout the second half, Leipsic got the ball with 1 second remaining after a late miss by the Vikings went out of bounds off a McComb player setting up Gerten’s last-second attempt.
Both teams had no trouble finding the basket. Leipsic hit 48 percent (24 of 50) of its field goal tries, while McComb connected on 24 of 51 attempts (47.1 percent). The difference was from behind the 3-point line where McComb hit on 8 of 19 attempts, including a 25-footer by Alison Beverly as the first-half buzzer sounded. Leipsic was 3 of 8 from behind the arc.
