ELMWOOD - A coast-to-coast lay-up by senior Ally Pax with :4.6 seconds to go lifted Elmwood to a 59-57 non-conference win over Gilmanton Monday evening.
The Raiders had trouble bringing up the ball all evening against the Panthers' press but Pax was able to out run a pair of Gilmanton, 3-10 overall, defenders along the sideline and took the ball right to the basket for the lay-up which broker a 57-57 tie.
Pax had a season-best 13 points while Elmwood also had two other players in double figures as Janessa VandenBerge led the team in scoring with 14 points and McKayla Brunner scored 12 points. Gilmanton's Brittany Laehn led everyone with 32 points to go with 11 rebounds.
EHS improves to 5-8 overall and snapped a two-game losing streak. Elmwood is in action tonight at Elk Mound and returns home Friday to host Plum City. Tip time is at 7:30 p.m. inside the The Red Zone gymnasium.
