Grizzlies slip past Yreka in OT

ASHLAND — Brenna Heater and the Ashland girls basketball team wouldn't be denied Tuesday night, outlasting Yreka for a 55-52 overtime victory.

Heater, a 6-foot-3 junior post, scored eight of the Grizzlies' 10 points in the fourth quarter to help send the game into overtime.

In the extra session, Layla Zare and Kelsey McKinnis each scored four points to clinch the come-from-behind victory.

"We did a great job of breaking the press, and that's how Layla got a couple of her easy baskets," said Ashland coach Steve Farley, "and Kelsey hit a couple big free throws in overtime."

McKinnis finished with 11 points, while Zare had nine points and seven rebounds for the Grizzlies (2-2).

Heater, however, proved to be the driving force on Tuesday, finishing with a game-high 22 points to go with nine rebounds, five blocks and three steals.

"We did a great job of throwing it down to Brenna and letting her go play," Farley said of the post's big fourth quarter. "And we also did a good job of coming back and getting a few big stops."

Heater scored with 35 seconds to go in regulation to tie the game at 47-all, and the Grizzlies forced a turnover with three seconds left. McKinnis' last-second shot, however, was blocked to send the game into overtime.

Carrie Watson had 15 points to lead Yreka.
