Annette Hogan’s three-point attempt just before the buzzer caromed off the back iron, allowing Davenport to escape with a 40-39 Delaware League girls basketball victory at Margaretville on Tuesday.
Hogan’s 2-for-2 showing at the foul line with 12 seconds left pulled the Blue Devils to 40-39.
Margaretville then fouled Emily Whipple, who missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with six seconds left. The Blue Devils rebounded, setting up the final sequence.
Sami Hunt had 15 points and 15 rebounds for Margaretville, which received 10 points from Hogan.
“They switched their zone defense to a man-to-man and we didn’t respond well,” said Margaretville coach Kyle Holden, whose team led the Wildcats, 23-22, at halftime.
Sarah Haight paced Davenport with a game-high 16 points. Jenna Lutz finished with 14 points for the Wildcats, who outscored the Blue Devils, 12-2, in the third quarter.
Margaretville (3-6, 3-5) will play at Middleburgh today.

Payton Cutting scored 12 points for Afton, but that was not enough for the Crimson Knights to defeat visiting Harpursville. Afton (5-7, 3-5) made a run in the second quarter, where they outscored Harpursville 20-14, but could not overcome Harpursville’s 25-point first quarter.
Miranda Drummond scored a game-high 26 points for the Hornets in the win. Teammate Shelby Medovich added 11 points.
