HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Both the Trinity Catholic girls and Sterling came into Friday’s game in Hutchinson looking for their second win of the season, and both teams gave a tremendous effort, but it was Sterling getting just enough to push by the Celtics, 45-44 in overtime.

Sterling had a lead late in regulation, but Trinity’s Mattie Galliher sank her first 3-pointer of the season, sending it to overtime. There, Sterling’s 6-foot, 5-inch forward Lily Gray scored four points, part of her 22-point night.

Sterling’s defense got them into the game after Trinity led 13-8 after the first quarter, holding the Celtics scoreless in the second quarter.

Both teams will return to action next week at Sterling’s midseason tournament.
