Milton turned the tables on Whitewater High’s girls basketball team and dealt a blow to the Whippets’ conference title hopes.


While avenging a 57-37 early-season loss with a 59-50 victory Tuesday night, the host Red Hawks evened their Southern Lakes record at 4-4 and dropped Whitewater a game behind front-running Delavan-Darien (9-1) in the loss column at 7-2.


Milton overcame 27-25 halftime deficit and pulled away from a 40-39 edge in a 19-11 fourth quarter to break the Whippets’ eight-game winning streak. Liz Eide scored six of her 14 points and Tasha Randall got five of her 17 to lead the decisive surge.


The Red Hawks overcame Whitewater’s seven three-point goals by spreading their 25 field goals among eight players.


Megan Theune led Whitewater with 21 points, including four three-point goals. Chelsea Heil had 10 points for the Whippets, who fell to 14-3 for the season.
