BOTKINS — New Bremen sophomore Julie Brown’s jumper with five seconds left allowed the Cardinals to defeat the Botkins Trojans 50-48 on Monday night.

“We needed this win,” Cardinals head coach Randy Eckert said. “It was one of those games that they got a lead and we got a lead and it went back and forth and we were just fortunate to win it at the end.”

Going down the court the Trojans lost the ball out of bounds with 10 seconds left. Following a timeout, the Cardinals set up a play for Brown to get open for the final shot.

“That was a good pass from Kyla (Otting) getting the ball to Julie,” Eckert said. “It was a play that we designed and it worked.”

Brown led the way for New Bremen with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

The Cardinals (2-3) entertain Coldwater in a MAC game on Thursday and Delphos Jefferson on Saturday, while Botkins (2-3) entertain New Knoxville tonight.
