McKenna Hungerford finished off a 14-point night by completing a three-point play with one second left in overtime to lift visiting Morris to a 52-49 non-league girls basketball victory over Stamford on Tuesday.
Stamford (8-3) tied the score at 49 when Cassie Ehrhart hit a layup in transition with six seconds left in the extra period.
The Indians pressed following Ehrhart’s basket.
Stamford coach Lonnie Nickerson said the Mustangs passed two or three times before Hungerford’s winning basket.
“We were probably a little bit out of position and a little tired,” Nickerson said of the winning basket. “It wasn’t exquisite. I think it went to (Kelsea) Webster. She dribbled to midcourt and found Hungerford underneath. It was just a scramble play.”
Webster also had 14 points and Amanda Flint contributed 11, including a three-pointer in overtime for Morris (9-2).
Ehrhart finished with 18 points and 16 rebounds for Stamford, which received 13 points from Kim Freer.
“There could be a very good chance these teams could meet again,” Nickerson said of a possible matchup in the Section Four Class D tournament. “It was two good teams and a worthwhile game to watch as a spectator.”
Stamford will host Roxbury on Thursday.
Unatego 40, Windsor 39
Casey Manzanero made a foul-line jumper with 30 seconds left to give Unatego a non-league win on the road.
Manzanero’s basket capped the scoring and finished her game-high 20-point night.

“Our kids did good job defensively to force them into a bad shot,” Unatego coach Greg Bonczkowski said.
Trailing, 37-33, with two minutes left, Unatego guard Sarah Mannina made a three-point basket. A minute later, Michaela Reynolds made a basket to give the Spartans a 38-37 lead.
Ten seconds later, Erika Corbin put Windsor up, 39-38, with two free throws. But Corbin missed two free throws after Manzanero’s basket.
Before Mannina’s three pointer, Unatego had not scored in the fourth quarter.
“Several times it didn’t appear that things were going to go our way,” Bonczkowski said, “but our kids battled through adversity and found a way.”
Corbin led Windsor with 14 points.

Davenport’s Sarah Haight scored 12 points and had five assists, and teammate Kassie Jeffers contributed 10 points.
“They also out-rebounded us tonight and we were the bigger team,” Jones said. “So we definitely have to work on our rebounding.”
