Quick Durand rally snatches win from PHS girls' basketball team

DURAND - Prescott High School's girls basketball led Durand 34-32 with a little over two minutes to go and had double bonus at the free throw line.

But this advantage in position didn't lead Prescott to victory as Panthers went on a quick 7-0  run to win this non-conference contest 41-36 Monday evening.

Durand junior guard Ambree Schlosser scored seven of her game-high 18 points during this span, sinking a three-pointer to put the home team back in front and sinking four straight free-throws. 

A full-court press on Durand's part led to PHS  turnovers which gave the Panthers a chance to rally after PHS's defense held them just one point through 10 minutes of the second half.

Prescott came back from a 31-19 deficit in the second half to lead 34-32 led by scoring from Jennifer Kleinschmidt, Alysse Lewis, Heather Furlong and Katelyn Miller. Kleinschmidt led PHS with 11 points.

Prescott, 2-5 overall, is back in action again tonight at Somerset. The Cardinals are at Ellsworth on Thursday.

Prescott's Jennifer Kleinschmidt puts up a shot over several Durand defenders.
