Late in the fourth quarter at Howard on Wednesday night, Mt. Hebron's Meghan Doherty took a kick-out pass from fellow senior Megan Konig, dribbled once to her left, and with three seconds remaining on the shot clock, nailed a jumper from just inside the three-point line to put her Vikings ahead, 41-38.
