JV Lady Devils go down in double OT

Girls basketball fans who showed up early enough for the JV contest at North Adams High School on Dec. 14 certainly got every penny of their money’s worth as the Lady Devils hosted the Fairfield Lady Lions in a game that took two extra periods to decided, with the Lady Lions coming out on top 43-42.

For the second consecutive game, the Lady Devils took advantage of the one quarter of JV action from junior Caitlin Young, as Young drilled a trio of three-point goals in the opening frame, helping North Adams to an 11-7 advantage.

Int he second period, North Adams got another long distance bucket, this one from Abbi Stacy but were outscored 9-7 and at halftime, the home team found themselves clinging to a slim 18-16 lead.

With the shots from beyond the arc still falling on both sides, the Lady Devils were able to extend their lead in the third quarter, getting threes from Brooklyn Wylie and Madee Shipley and holding a 29-25 advantage heading into the final seven minutes. In that final seven minutes, the Lady Devils struggled mightily at the free throw line, hitting just 2 of 8 attempts, and that allowed the Lady Lions to rally and tie the game at 35 at the end of regulation.

On to a first overtime the two teams went where North Adams got a pair of free throws from Brooklyn Stout, a basket from Shipley, and another free throw from Allison Harper, but the extra period ended with the two teams still deadlocked at 40.

The Lady Devils took the lead in the second overtime on a basket from Charlee Louden, but the free throw struggles did in the home team, as Louden missed all four of her attempts in the second OT. The game came down to the final seconds with North Adams on top 42-20 and Fairfield with the possession. The Lady Lions’ Lauren Arnold fired in a three-pointer for the lead (her only basket of the game) with 1.3 seconds left and even with North Adams coach Tony Williams leaping up and down at half court trying to get a timeout, the clock ran out on a disappointing defeat for the home team.

In the loss, the Lady Devils put eight players in the scoring column, led by 9 points each from Madee Shipley and Caitlin Young. Charlee Louden added 6 and Brooklyn Wylie, Abbi Stacy, and Brooklyn Stout all scored 5. North Adams was just 6 for 17 from the foul line in the game.

Fairfield was paced by 9 points from Lyndee Sprague and 8 from Chloe Barber.

The double overtime loss dropped the Lady Devils to 3-2 on the year but they fell back to the .500 mark with a 36-24 loss to Eastern Brown on Wednesday night. They looked to right the ship and break their losing streak on the road at Whiteoak on Thursday evening.
