UNION — Kayla Ritter's two free throws with eight seconds remaining lifted Imbler over Union 49-48 in Wapiti League basketball Friday.

Imbler coach Barry Bowers was proud of his girls.

"We just don't quit," he said.

The Panthers (3-8 in league, 7-12 overall) snapped a five-game losing streak.

"Today it was about respect," Imbler's Penny Cline said. "Basically, we kicked butt."

Ritter said the Panthers kept up their intensity for four quarters instead of two.

Hall said the Panthers kept believing in themselves.

"They outplayed us," Union coach Wayne Herron said.

He said the Bobcats were fighting an uphill battle the entire game.

"They made shots," Herron said.

He said the Bobcats did not play well defensively.

He said their "lackadaisical" defense gave the Panthers opportunities, and they capitalized on them.

Cline hit a huge 3-pointer in the fourth quarter to pull the Panthers to within 45-44.

Union's Lena Weitlauf hit one free throw to put the Bobcats ahead 46-44.

Hannah Hall's 3-point play put the Panthers ahead 47-46.

Union's Sandra Meredith scored inside to put the Bobcats up 48-47.

The Panthers got the ball back with 40 seconds remaining. Ritter was fouled with eight seconds remaining, setting up her winning shots.

The Bobcats were unable to get a shot off before the buzzer.

The Panthers took a 14-7 first quarter lead before the Bobcats charged back in the second quarter.

Union's Kallin Prince hit two free throws, then stole the ball and made a lay-up to pull the Bobcats to within 17-16 just before the end of the first half.

The third quarter was back and forth. Union's Sandra Meredith hit a baseline jumper to put the Bobcats ahead 33-31 to end the third.

Hall led the Panthers with 21 points and 15 rebounds. Ritter scored 10 and Cline chipped in nine.

Savely scored 15 points to lead the Bobcats. Prince had 14 points and four steals.

The Panthers play at Elgin, while second-place Union (8-3, 10-7) hosts Nyssa today.
