Prague led 26-17 at the intermission.

Chandler 38, Prague 34 (Girls OT)

Chandler outscored Prague 6-2 in overtime after regulation ended in a tie at 32.

Hannah Vandenbrand, Chandler’s leading scorer with 16, had the only visitor field goal in overtime. The Lady Lions added four free throws.

Prague’s only OT scoring was a field goal by junior Alauna Parker.

“Both teams shot horrible,” said Prague coach Benny Burnett. “It was a sloppy, turnover-fest game. A lot of Vandenbrand’s scoring came on second shots. She killed us on the boards. We couldn’t block her out.”

Junior Jaelynn Robertson of Chandler collected 12 points.

For Prague (3-5), junior Payton Camren was the leading scorer with 11.

Chandler prevailed despite hitting just 12-of-27 charity tosses for 44.4%. Prague was 7 of 13 for 53.8%.

Prague will entertain Meeker Friday night.
