"We came out a little flat tonight," Skyline coach Lynette Schroeder said. "We can’t afford to do that against good teams, and tonight it hurt."

The Eagles came out for the second half, played better defense and shot the ball well. Junior Sydnee Taylor notched a career-high with 25, including two 3-pointers. Fellow junior Mia Mortensen added 10 for the Eagles.

Brighton finally put this one away by outscoring Skyline 5-2 in the third overtime session.

"I liked our second-half effort, and I told the kids they have nothing to hang their heads about," Schroeder said.

Neither team shot free throws particularly well, but Brighton’s 10 of 22 from the line ultimately did in the Eagles, who made only 4 of 11 from the charity stripe.
