With two Rock Valley girls basketball contenders on a collision course Thursday night, Leah Hegi and her Brodhead High teammates came up with a huge victory.


Hegi ended up with the ball after a collision under Brodhead basket with 50 seconds left and converted a critical field goal to give visiting Cardinals a 57-53 lead that led to a 62-58 win over Walworth Big Foot.


Courtney Mielke made three of four free throws down the stretch to seal the victory, which kept Brodhead tied with Orfordville Parkview for the conference lead at 7-1.


Big Foot, a 51-47 winner over Brodhead in their earlier meeting, fell a game behind the co-leaders at 6-2 and slipped 10-4 for the season.


After a 35-35 halftime tie, the Chiefs took a 45-43 lead into the fourth quarter. It remained a nip-and-tuck battle the rest of the way.


While pivotal basket in the final minute accounted for Hegi’s only points, Brodhead rolled with the 1-2 punch of Kristen Ruchti and Paige Hoeper. They finished with 22 and 20 points, respectively, and sophomore forward Jordyn Courier led big Foot with 19. Jenny Pietkauskis added 11 for the Chiefs.
