The Glenwood girls basketball team couldn’t hold on to a seven-point fourth-quarter lead as Clarinda stormed back for a 58-46 overtime victory on Friday.

Trailing by seven with just over three minutes to go, Clarinda tied the score before Glenwood appeared to have the game in hand up 42-40 with :16 seconds left but the Cardinals managed to tie the game and send it to overtime. In the extra frame Clarinda outscored Glenwood 16-4.

“This was a hard one to lose,” said Glenwood coach Barry Loeffelbein. “We had plenty of chances to win and we didn’t get it done.”

The Rams played the overtime without leading scorer Morgan Lucy who fouled out in regulation after scoring 21 points and grabbing nine rebounds.

The Rams (9-7 overall, 7-7 in the conference) shot just 35.2 percent (18-of-51) from the field and missed all 10 of their three-point attempts. Glenwood also turned the ball over 23 times compared to the Cardinals seven turnovers.

“We didn’t take good enough care of the ball and didn’t shoot it well enough,” said Loeffelbein.

Cassie Stewart added eight points and five boards for Glenwood.

Kaylee Buch led Clarinda with a game-high 23 points and 16 rebounds.

Council Bluffs Lewis Central out scored the Glenwood girls basketball team 29-8 in a crucial second-quarter run in a 57-35 Titan victory in Council Bluffs last Monday.
