The Lady Roadrunners fell to the Moberly Area Community College Lady Greyhounds 79-72 in overtime Jan. 15 in another Region 16 contest at the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center.
The Lady Roadrunners found themselves in a deep hole to begin the game. Moberly jumped out to a 39-23 lead near the end of the first half and took a 40-28 lead into halftime.
SFCC (9-7, 1-1 in Region 16) came out of the locker room with renewed intensity. The Lady Roadrunners cut into Moberly’s advantage, even taking a three-point lead in the second half.
“We started playing better defensively,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “We started playing with more heart and passion than we did in the first half.”
SFCC missed a shot in the waning seconds of regulation that would have won the contest. The Lady Roadrunners had to settle for overtime with the game tied at 72 at the end of regulation. Moberly took control of the game once again in the overtime period, outscoring SFCC 7-0 to secure a 79-72 win.
