Mendon scored a dramatic 42-41 girls basketball road victory against Quincy Thursday evening. The game came down to the final possession, which saw a buzzer-beating bucket from Bailie Lash.
“Mendon was down by one with eight seconds left and had to bring the ball down the full court,” said coach Leasa Griffith. “Payton Griffith found Bailie Lash in the middle of the lane – and Lash hit a short jumper from the middle of the lane just before the buzzer to win the game.”
The Hornets are 2-0 to start the season and begin Southwest 10 Conference play Tuesday at Hartford. Quincy (0-1) plays at Maple Valley Monday.
