River Bluff’s varsity women’s basketball team took a 5-1 record on the road to White Knoll Tuesday night. It took an exciting comeback and overtime for the Gators to defeat the Timberwolves in the Gator Pit. So, Tuesday’s match-up promised to be another nail biter. That’s exactly what transpired.

The first half was a tale of two quarters. White Knoll came out on fire and River Bluff started the game sluggishly, finding themselves trailing at the end of the first quarter 15-6. The Gators hit their stride in the 2nd quarter, however, putting 17 points on the board to enter the halftime locker room all knotted up with the Timberwolves at 23.

The second half went back and forth. White Knoll jumped out to an early lead, but River Bluff fought back to get it back within 6 as the third quarter came to an end. The fourth quarter saw River Bluff storm back and take the lead. It was nip-and-tuck down to the final buzzer. With 9 seconds remaining and a 1-point lead, the Gators inbounded the ball needing to go the length of the floor. Reagan Rozier was fouled and drained both free throws. White Knoll was unable to convert on their last possession. Final score – RIver Bluff 55, White Knoll 52.
