Things are on the improve for the Delavan-Darien High girls basketball team.

The Comets took second-place Waterford to overtime before losing 46-43 in a Southern Lakes Conference game on the Wolverines’ court Friday.

Delavan-Darien fell to 1-6 in the conference and 5-10 overall but has been scoring more while going 3-3 in 2020.

Waterford, 6-2 in the conference, could never shrug off the Comets. The visitors led at halftime 22-16.

Freshman Amelia Gonzalez hit a key 3-pointer—her first varsity points—to keep the Comets close in the final minutes. The Wolverines still led 41-39 with 4.5 seconds left in regulation.

The Comets’ Kailea Timmerman shook loose underneath and put in a layup to send the game into overtime.

Waterford’s Meghan Schmidt hit a 3-pointer early in overtime, and the Comets weren’t able to respond.

Timmerman finished with a game-high 20 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. McKenna Williams added 10 points.
