WAITSBURG — Visiting Mac-Hi played Waitsburg-Prescott’s girls to a 37-all tie at halftime here Saturday night.

And the Pioneers traded leads with W-P throughout the second half.

But Kaitlyn Stringham hit two free throws with eight seconds remaining to secure the 59-55 victory for the host team.

"It was a very close game," W-P coach Jerry Baker said. "It was back and forth all the way to the end. We were tied at halftime, and then we’d get up by one or two, and they’d get up one or two."

Andrea Roeder and Sierra Burchell caused trouble for W-P, Baker said.

"We didn’t have any answers for them," he said. "(Roeder) gave us fits on both the offensive and defensive ends. She’s quite a ball player. She’s quick and sees the court well. We had a hard time with her again."

Roeder finished with a game-high 25 points, including four 3-pointers, while Burchell added 18 for the Pioneers.

W-P was led by Genesis Pearson’s 18 points, with Megan Withers putting up 12 and Amanda Weis 10. Pearson also grabbed 22 of W-P’s 46 rebounds.

"Overall, we played pretty good," Baker said. "Both teams played hard up and down the floor.

"I’m real happy, we’re still young and learning, but we play really hard. I’m happy with that."

"It was a great game," Mac-Hi coach Curtis Pumphrey said. "The spectators got their money’s worth. It was a good game to watch."
