Walworth Big Foot High School won an offensive battle Friday night to keep a share of the lead in the nip-and-tuck Rock Valley girls basketball race.


Jordyn Courier scored 17 points to lead the Chiefs’ balanced attack, which produced just enough punch to outlast hot-shooting Evansville, 67-62, and enable host Big Foot to keep pace with Brodhead and Orfordville Parkview at 6-1.


Hailey McIntyre scored 23 points, Alicia Kopp collected 17, and Mary Bisch added 11 to keep Evansville (5-7, 3-4) in hot pursuit of the Chiefs. However, Big Foot maintained a slim lead all the way.


Jenny Pietkauskis made two free throws with eight seconds left to give Big Foot a 66-62 lead. Kaylee Kolnik’s free throw with less than a second left completed the scoring.


Kolnik finished with 10 points, all in the second half, and was Big Foot’s only other double-figure scorer.
