Miracle comeback lifts Towson girls to playoff win
Towson High scored the final 11 points in the last 2:50 of regulation to tie the Lansdowne girls, 41-41, and the host Generals (14-8) prevailed in overtime, 48-45, in the Class 3A North sectional basketball semifinals.
Towson trailed 41-30 when Audra Lucas made a three-pointer to start the run with 2:50 left in the fourth quarter.
The Generals still trailed, 41-33, until a basket by Daija Fitchett (game-high 16 points) made it 41-35 with 1:12 remaining.
Erin Steinberg’s steal led to a basket and her three-pointer with 42 seconds made it 41-40 and Steinberg (13 points) sent it to overtime when she made the second of two free throws with 2.1 seconds left in regulation.
“The weight of the world was on her shoulders and she pulled through,” Towson coach Rebecca Cahall said.
