Eagles Win on Atkins Buzzer Beater

Gabby Atkins hit a desperation three pointer from just inside the half court line as Southern Door beat Oostburg, 31-28, in a girls WIAA Division 3 regional championship game in Brussels on Saturday night.  The Flying Dutch held a 13-9 lead at the half and neither team would lead by more three points in the second half in what proved to be a tough, defensive game between evenly matched teams.  The Eagles (20-4) tied the game at 28 -28 with 2:49 to play and after each team had empty possesions, the Flying Dutch (17-6) had the ball with less than a minute to play but a Grace LeGrave steal set up the Atkins game winning heroics for the Eagles.  Kendra Dantoin scored a game high 9 points for the Eagles.  It’s Southern Door’s first regional championship since 1992 and the Eagles will play Valders at Manitowoc Lincoln on Thurday Night.  Our coverage begins with the Jorns Chevrolet
