Girls basketball: Kirk, Scott hit big buckets as time winds down

Apparently, there is something to be said for saving things until the last minute.
That’s exactly what the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team did Saturday night and it paid off.
Los Alamos trailed the St. Michael’s Horsemen by three points with under a minute remaining, but hit two huge late buckets to pull out a thrilling victory.
With 48.5 seconds remaining, Erin Kirk hit her third 3-pointer of the game from the right side of the arc to tie the score. After Los Alamos forced a turnover, Anna Scott drained her only basket of the contest, a 12-foot jumper with :10 left, giving the Hilltoppers a 38-36 victory in their home opener.
“That last minute was very exciting,” Hilltopper guard Marissa Higdon said. “After Erin hit the three, we decided to put a press on the ball and see what happens.”
The final minute of the game made up for a rough performance through most of the fourth quarter. Los Alamos led by six going into the quarter, but scored just two points for a better than seven-minute stretch.
