Mt. Hood misses upset bid
NWAC WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

|Mt. Hood CC|
OREGON CITY The Mt. Hood womens basketball team couldnt slam the door shut on Clackamas during a 77-71 overtime loss Wednesday night.
After chasing from behind all game long, the Saints put on a sprint to begin the fourth quarter, scoring on six straight possessions. That helped Mt. Hood to a 66-64 lead after Jesse Morris hit 1 of 2 at the free-throw line in the final minute.
Clackamas hit iron on a fadeaway shot in the lane and again on a 3-point try for the win. But the Cougars kept hitting the boards, and Johanna Paine drew a foul in a crowd under the basket. She sank both free throws to tie the score with 16.7 seconds left.
Mt. Hood had a layup attempt at the other end blocked, and the Saints never led in the extra five-minute session.
