The Lady Raiders trailed 42-39 late in regulation with Bradford at the free-throw line. The Lady Owls, however, missed the charity shot, and Brookville’s Marcy Schindler grabbed the rebound and was fouled sending her to the line with 6.2 seconds left in regulation.

Hergert was fouled on the play as well but missed the free throw. Bradford, however, saw time run out.
