Tigers rally to beat Glencoe in overtime

Tigard moves to 8-0 in league play with the 41-39 win


TIGARD — The Tigard High School girls basketball team kept its perfect Pacific Conference record intact.

But it was close.

The Tigers stayed unbeaten in league play by scoring a 41-39 overtime win over Glencoe in a league contest played Tuesday at Tigard High School.

With the victory, Tigard improved its league-leading Pacific Conference record to 8-0, giving the Tigers a two-game lead over second-place Tualatin, while also improving to 15-3 on the season. Glencoe dropped to 5-3 in league games and to 9-9 on the season.

Senior post Megan Risinger sank a game-tying three-point basket late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s game. She then accounted for the only points scored in the four-minute overtime session with a pair of free throws.

Risinger also topped the Tigers in scoring in the contest with 19 points. Junior guard Lexi Carter added 14 points for Tigard and junior guard Emilee Cincotta had eight points.

The victory marked the second time Tigard had a game-tying fourth-quarter rally, leading to an overtime win in league play this season.

The first time came in a 50-48 overtime victory over Tualatin back on Jan. 11.

Prior to the win over Glencoe, the Tigers posted a 49-20 victory over Forest Grove in a league game played Friday at Tigard High School.

Cincotta scored 12 points in that game. Carter added 10 and senior post Meeka Mayhew scored nine.
