Dennis Girls Basketball vs. National Trail

7th Grade

Up most of the game the Dennis Intermediate Bulldogs battled back in a thriller performance against National Trail Middle School.  At the end of regulation, the game was tied 19-19.   During the 3:00 minute overtime period Amari Jackson secured the jump for Dennis.  With under 1:00 minute to go in overtime National Trail drove to the bucket to take the lead 21 – 19.   In the bonus, National trail fouled Kiarra Handley to put her on the line.  She converted on the first free throw and missed the second one.  With 23 seconds on the clock Savanah Hilbert stole the inbounds pass for the Dennis Bulldogs to travel down the court.  Amari Jackson then forced a turnover for National Trail team with 7.0 seconds left.  With 4.0 seconds left Kiarra Handley took the inbounds pass from J’Lynn Marshall and drove to the hole for the game winning point.
