By KEVIN WANNEMACHER
HAVILAND – Wayne Trace nearly rallied from an 18-point third quarter deficit but visiting Ayersville held on for a 63-59 win over the Lady Raiders Friday night in Green Meadows Conference action.
Ayersville held a 49-31 advantage late in the third quarter before the Raiders outscored the Pilots 26-14 in the final stanza.
Trailing by three with 11 seconds remaining, the Raiders had possession with an opportunity to tie the game but turned the ball over instead. Ayersville’s Megan Schubert then hit a free throw with seven seconds on the clock to seal the Pilot victory.
