ELGIN — The Union basketball girls got their Wapiti League season off to a 2-0 start, shutting down Elgin in the fourth quarter to win Saturday 50-38.

"They played with composure," said Union coach Wayne Herron. "It's a big win."

Both teams came in to the game after big Wapiti League opening wins Friday night. Elgin upset Enterprise in Enterprise's gym, while Union beat Joseph in overtime.

Elgin (1-1 in Wapiti League, 5-2 overall) coach Randy McKone thought his girls came out flat, perhaps because the Enterprise win drained them.

"I thought we had a bit of a letdown after (Friday) night," McKone. McKone said his girls came back to make it a game after a rough start, but added, "we have to get rid of those peaks and valleys."

Union jumped on Elgin early, surging out to a 15-6 lead, but the Huskies came roaring back, tying the game at 17-17 late in the first half after a Hailey Wiles 3-pointer.

In the end of the half, Union clung to a 26-23 advantage. Tiffany Fincher had a huge third quarter for the Huskies, scoring six straight points and coming up with two big steals as Elgin appeared headed for the third quarter break down just 36-33.

But, then Union's April Savely made the shot that might have turned the tide for the Bobcats. After having to go out of the game when she took an elbow in the midsection, Savely got her breath back, came back in and banked a long 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Union a 39-33 lead.

Buckets by Fincher and Brittany Beedle brought Elgin back to within 40-37 early in the fourth quarter, but then Union closed the game out with a 10-1 run over the final six minutes.

Herron thought Savely had a great game. She scored 19 and shot 6-for-7 on her free throws. In addition to her 3-point buzzer-beater, Savely also converted two 3-point plays.

Wiles led the Huskies with 15 points, while Fincher scored 14. Kallin Prince scored 11 for Union. Chelsea Herron had 10 rebounds for Union, while Sandra Meredith had nine boards for the Bobcats.

Elgin hosts Nyssa Friday, while Union hosts Grant Union.
