Hononegah’s Allyson Niedfeldt, who tied Haley Warren for scoring honors with 15 points, passes off in the first half Tuesday night.

MACHESNEY PARK, Ill.—Sophomore Allyson Niedfeldt converted crucial back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Hononegah Indians the lead in overtime and they went on to edge upset-minded Harlem 53-48 in overtime.

It was an uphill battle for the Indians (18-3, 8-0 NIC-10), who fell behind 16-3 at the outset before treys by Haley Warren and Niedfeldt helped close the gap.

The game was tied at 34-34 after three quarters as Carly LaMay swished a half-court shot at the buzzer.

The game was then tied at 42-42 at the end of regulation.

After Niedfeldt opened the extra session with her two bombs to put Hononegah ahead 48-42, the Indians got a steal and a layup by Kamryn Abney and a pair of free throws by LaMay to lead 52-45 with just 26 second remaining.

LaMay tacked on one more free throw for the 52-48 final.

Warren and Niedfeldt each converted five 3-pointers to tie for scoring honors with 15 points apiece. LaMay and Abney each chipped in nine.
