A district doubleheader game at Turtle Lake-Mercer McClusky Tuesday night saw the Comets from Underwood defeat the Trojans in both games. A hard-fought defensive battle in the girls’ game had the Comets on top 31-29 as time ran out and the boys game saw the Comets take control midway through the second quarter and coast to a 57- 27 win.
Underwood’s Taysha Snyder scored what would be the game-winning points from close range with just 41 seconds remaining in the game as a follow-up shot from the Trojans with eight seconds rolled off the rim, as the Comets escaped with the 31-29 win.
Snyder was the game’s leading scorer with 14 points; Sophie Sparrow and Kaleigh Naser both scored 6 points for the Trojans.
After TLMM’s Ashley Bergquist scored a deuce and a free throw and with 3:01 left in the second stanza and was followed up by a Sparrow midrange jumper, giving the Trojans the 16-6 lead.
After an Underwood time out the Comets finished the quarter with a 9-0 run to take a 15-13 lead at the halftime break.
