ST. HENRY - After a sluggish start to Saturday's game, St. Henry's girls basketball team did nearly everything they needed to do to rally and beat Lima Central Catholic.
However, LCC's Stacia Allen canned a pair of free throws with 16.8 seconds left in the game to put the visitors on top 51-50 and teammate Ty Taylor's free throws with three seconds on the clock helped the T-Birds escape Redskin Gymnasium with a 53-50 win. [More]
