BAILEYTON — Cloudland’s girls pushed conference-leading North Greene all the way here Friday night but couldn’t overcome a pair of dry spells that let the host Lady Huskies slip away with a key victory as the regular season approaches the final stretch.

The Lady Highlanders fell behind in a big way in the first quarter but battled back to tie it in the third. Then, the scoring went dry, allowing North Greene to stay a step ahead thanks to 16 free-throw attempts in the fourth quarter that opened the door for a 46-41 victory.

NORTH GREENE 58-53

North Greene stayed just enough ahead of Cloudland in each of the first three quarters to withstand a late rally by the Highlanders to hang on for the win.

Cloudland outscored North Greene 20-12 in the fourth quarter, trimming the final deficit to five on a basket at the horn.
