Canandaigua 66, Brighton 58 F/2OT

Braves force OT on late bucket, pull away in 2nd OT
Janae Guy led Canandaigua with 21 points and Ali Fitzgerald scored with ten seconds left in regulation to force overtime as the Braves eventually beat Brighton 66-58 in double overtime Friday night on Winton Road.

Canandaigua led by six early in the fourth quarter before Brighton went on a 22-9 run. Brooke Wolff gave the Barons their first lead of the quarter with a three-point play and Brighton led by five points with 20 seconds to go.

However, Fitzgerald completed her own three-point play to pull the Braves within two. After Brighton missed a pair of free throws, Fitzgerald easily drove for the tying bucket with ten seconds to go. The Barons were unable to inbound quickly after Fitzgerald's score and a 60-foot heave at the buzzer missed short and left.

Canandaigua scored the first four points of overtime, but the Barons shut CA down from there. Kiera Lorenzo canned a three and Brighton made one of two free throws with 12 seconds left to tie.

Each team had a chance to win at the end of the first overtime, but Canandaigua lost a dribble out of bounds with 0.4 remaining. Brighton actually connected on a length of the court pass and got a shot off in those four tenths of a second, but it missed too high off the backboard.

Canandaigua quickly took over in the second OT. Guy made a layup to give the Braves the lead for good and Jordan Johnson hit a three a minute later to make the lead five points. Brighton was all out of comebacks and scored only two points in the four-minute period.

Mara Sindoni added 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Braves.
