By Will Mossing

Cedarville finished off their season with an overtime loss to Ripley Union-Lewis-Huntington at Monroe HS.

The matchup between Cedarville High School and Ripley ULH High School was a tight game from start to finish. With around 9 seconds left in regulation senior Ryleigh Burnett’s foul shots put the Indians up by 2. Ripley went down the court and scored a quick lay-up to put the game into overtime.

From the overtime tip-off mishap to a last second shot, overtime just seemed against the lady Indians. Ripley got up to a 5 point lead and Cedarville almost crawled all the way back, but senior Molly Mossing – who was double teamed throughout overtime – had a good look at a last second, with a lot of contact and it just couldn’t roll in.

The Lady Indians were led by Mossing with 17 points. Cedarville finished off the season with a record of 15-8 and placed second in the Ohio Heritage Conference.
