"We came out (in the second half) and were playing passive, we weren't playing aggressive" CC-E girls coach Lester Tessum said. "In the fourth quarter, the girls really got back to it and finished aggressive. That made a big difference."
CC-E started the fourth quarter with a 8-0 run to tie the game at 39-39. With 45 seconds left, Jobst hit two free throws to tie the game at 47. Following a Rachel Struve bucket on the other end, Jobst was fouled again. She hit the first, missed the second, got the rebound and banked in the go-ahead shot with 11 seconds left.
On the ensuing in-bounds, South O'Brien (5-3) was called for a travel. Jobst would hit 1-of-2 at the line and Wolverines' final play under the basket with two seconds left was deflected by Stevie Scott to seal the win.
The Mavs out-scored South O'Brien 18-8 in the fourth quarter and improved to 4-1 on the season. Blair Montgomery added eight points and 16 rebounds before fouling out, while Mattie Larson hit two 3-pointers and Stevie Scott grabbed seven rebounds.
Struve led the Wolverines with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
