Edgerton High withstood a late threat to pull of a major upset in Rock Valley girls basketball Tuesday night.


After her team’s lead was cut to one point with 30 seconds left, Edgerton senior Fawn Bingham sank two free throws, and the Crimson Tide held on for a 63-61 victory over


visiting Walworth Big Foot.


The loss dropped Big Foot two games behind first-place Orfordville Parkview (10-1) at 8-3 with only three games to go, while Edgerton improved to 4-7 in the conference and 4-13 overall.


Edgerton led all the way, but things were up for grabs in the closing seconds. After Bingham’s free throws put the Tide up by three, Big Foot (12-5) quickly scored on Jordyn Courier’s hook shot to get back within one, but Edgerton senior Bri Cox made one of two free throws with six seconds left to complete the scoring.


Big Foot got the rebound off the missed free throw, but Chiefs were unable to get off a last-second shot.


Courier led all scorers with 20 points, and teammate Jenny Pietkauskis added 14. Meggie Schmidt led Edgerton with 18 points, followed by Molly McCall and Fawn Bingham with 10 apiece.
