CHASSELL - Kirsten Daavettila's three from the top of the key with nine seconds left was the difference as Chassell swept the season series from Range rivals Jeffers, winning 38-35 at home in Copper Country Conference play.

Chassell had taken a 31-26 lead after three quarters, but the Jets had clawed back to a tie in the last minute of regulation before Daavettila connected.

It was an all-around strong night for the Chassell offense, which got 14 points from Jamie Dompier and 13 from Sara Kilpela.

"They did a great job on offense of bringing the ball and trying to look for the open shot," Chassell coach Brandi Hainault said.

The Jets countered with a solid performance from Kelsey Heinonen, who scored 13 points and made all of Jeffers' free throws, going 7-for-8 from the line and hitting a pair of threes.

Haley Makela added 10 points for the Jets, who fall to 3-15 (3-6 CCC). They play at Hancock Thursday.

Chassell (9-7, 6-3 CCC) hosts Watersmeet Thursday.

Though the gap was just three points at halftime, Northland Pines outscored its visitors 30-15 after the break.

"Foul trouble and we wore down in terms of trying to stay on the boards with them," Ontonagon coach Dick Franti said. "That's the kind of club they are. They've got good size and they can bring in good size."

West Iron County 50, Hancock 28

HANCOCK - The Bulldogs struggled to handle the physical and technical post play of the Wykons' Megan Miatech, who scored 24 points in WIC's WestPAC win.

Miatech was 10-for-14 from the field and collected 15 rebounds.

"She played very quick tonight, she had a great first step, she was difficult to contain," Hancock coach Jack Johnson said.

Hancock could not issue enough of a response on the offensive end, shooting just 10 percent in a 10-point first half and 10-for-48 from the field for the game.

"We just did not shoot well. That's the bottom line," Johnson said.

Ewen-Trout Creek 46, Baraga 41 (OT)

EWEN - Ewen-Trout Creek pitched the shutout in overtime to preserve a non-conference win over Baraga.

"I think at the end of the game when it was close, we made some smart decisions, took care of the ball and didn't have turnovers," E-TC coach Jacky Besonen said.

Jenna Heikkinen tied it for Baraga on her triple with a half-minute left in regulation. After a pair of E-TC misses at the buzzer, the Panthers took over in OT, with both their field goals coming on McGeshick post plays. The senior finished with 20 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks.

"She posted really well tonight and we were able to feed her well also," Besonen said.

Sam Robl and Taylor Niemi finished with four assists.
