IMBLER — Kayla Ritter's last-second shot gave the Imbler Panthers a 44-42 Wapiti League basketball win over Elgin Friday.

"It feels really great," Ritter said.

The Panthers rallied from a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Penny Cline's 3-pointer was the highlight of the rally, giving the Panthers a 36-34 lead.

Hannah Hall and Ritter said Cline's shot was awesome and picked everyone up.

"Our heart is pretty big," Cline said about the Panthers refusing to quit.

Imbler coach Barry Bowers agreed.

"The girls have hearts as big as their bodies," he said.

The Huskies tied the game at 38-38 with 1:32 remaining.

Elgin's Mary Alice Tucker hit one free throw to put the Huskies ahead 39-38. Then, Brittany Beedle's basket pushed the lead to 41-38.

Hall hit two free throws to bring the Panthers to within 41-40.

Ritter's putback put the Panthers ahead 42-41.

Hailey Wiles made one free throw to tie the game at 42-42 with 28.1 seconds left.

The Panthers got the ball back with 8.1 seconds and passed the ball into Ritter for her winning shot.

"We continue to turn over the ball in crunch time," Elgin coach Randy McKone said.

McKone said this was a frustrating game and the girls know they threw this one away. He said Sanders and Tucker played well in the loss.

The Huskies were 11-for-30 from the free-throw line.

"We'll come back and play hard tomorrow," McKone said.

Ritter finished with 17 points.

Tiffany Fincher and Sanders had eight apiece for the Huskies.

The Panthers (2-3 in league, 6-7 overall) host Nyssa, while the Huskies (1-4, 5-5) host Grant Union today.
