Mid-Atlantic Prep League consolation game

Mercersburg erased a 23-point first half deficit to win the consolation game of the MAPL tournament ... With less than a minute left in regulation, McKenzie Brink sank 2 free throws pull the Blue Storm (16-6) even with Peddie ... Hannah Warfield put MA in front for good in overtime, scoring a basket and 2 free throws to complete the comeback ... Blue Storm coach David Bell said, "It was a 10a.m. game and it felt like we hadn't gotten out of bed. We were still down 17 points going into the 4th quarter, and the girls just took over. They were on fire, especially defensively with a lot of steals and our full court press broke them down." ... Melody Gomez registered a double-double for MA with a team-high 16 points and 10 rebounds ... Teal Tasker followed her with 15 points, 4 steals and 2 blocks.
