Kindseth, Borowicz 3s do the trick
With 9 minutes remaining in their Freshman Division 1 championship matchup, North Tartan Sinn led Stars 9th Hersch 37-31. The 2 had gone back and forth in the 1st half but a pair of Johanna Langbehn buckets helped Tartan ease out to a 27-24 halftime lead. 3 1st half 3-pointers by the Stars’ Paige Kindseth kept things from getting out of hand, and it took another 3 by Kindseth to keep the Stars within 6 in the 2nd.
“We played hard in the 1st half,” coach Josh Hersch said, “but we didn’t play smart. Credit North Tartan, they played great defense. We would take a drive and there were 2 bodies waiting and we didn’t adjust.”
Katie Borowicz, who scored 31 in the semis for the Stars but had just one previous FG in the finals, finally got untracked with a 3 at 8 minutes. Kindseth tied it up at 39 with a 3 at 4 minutes, then scored off a steal to give the Stars their 1st lead since 22-20. Borowicz quickly hit another 3, and Adalia Mackenzie scored on a dribble drive at the 1 minute mark. The Stars led 49-43
