Mounties Stun Mystics in Women’s Final

In what will go down as an instant classic, the Mount Allison University Mounties came away with a77-71 victory in overtime to capture the ACAA Women's Basketball title.

The Mystics held an eight point advantage at half time, thanks in large part to Madisen Jennex who dropped 13 first half points.

That's when the Mounties started to make their move. Led by the balanced scoring of Emma Hachey and Lauren McEachern, the Mounties gradually pulled closer as the game neared the end.

Sue Hachey, who with one second left, and her team trailing by two, was fouled on a shot attempt and stepped to the line to shoot two of the biggest free throws of her life. She calmly nailed the first, and after a deep breath, hit the second to send the game to overtime.

In the extra period the Mounties used their balanced attack of Kiersten Mangold, Hachey and McEachern to pull away to a six point victory, an upset over the top-seeded Mystics.

McEachern finished with 24 points, while Hachey had a double-double of 17 points, 12 rebounds.

Jennex had 19 for the Mystics and Kate Gallant had 18.

Both teams will advance to CCAA Championships via the Mounties hosting.
