Rio Hondo Prep girls lose, 49-46

SANTA ANA – Providence Hall’s Lacey Gonzalez made two free throws with 13.2 seconds to play to secure a 49-46 victory over Rio Hondo Prep in the CIF-Southern Section Division 6 girls championship basketball game on Saturday afternoon at Mater Dei High.
The Kares cut the Lions’ lead to 47-46 with 1:08 to play on a pair of Colleen Drain free throws. Rio Hondo had a chance to win the game. Both teams missed field-goal attempts and after a Kares turnover, Olivia Borroca, who broke a 44-44 tie with a 20-footer, threw up a 45-footer, thinking the clock was about to expire. Erin Murphy rebounded the shot, which was nowhere near close to the basket and was immediately fouled by the Lions with 17.1 seconds to play. She missed the front end of the one-and-one and Sydney Hedges of Providence rebounded. Gonzalez then made both free throws. The Kares’ Madison Loomis missed a 12-footer from the baseline that hit the side of the backboard to end the game.
