Seven days after going scoreless the final four minutes of the game, fourth-ranked Mount Hebron did it again last night at eighth-ranked Glenelg.

Only longer.

This time, the Vikings' last point of the game came with 5:54 to play. And like last week when they hung on to beat Oakland Mills by a point, the Vikings survived two missed shots, two missed free throws and five straight turnovers to edge the Gladiators, 32-31.

"I don't care how, if we win, we win," said Mount Hebron coach Scott Robinson.

Glenelg, which trailed 9-0 three minutes into the game and 21-10 at halftime, moved to within 30-26 on Alli Biggs' three-point basket with 6:03 remaining. Erin Jaschik, who had all six fourth-quarter points for the Vikings (11-0 overall, 7-0 league), scored on a layup with 5:54 to make it a six-point game.

Biggs hit another basket with 5:06 left and Heather Young's three-point shot brought the Gladiators (7-3, 5-2) to within 32-31 with 3:50 to play.

From that point on, the Vikings missed one field goal, turned the ball over five straight times, then in the final six seconds twice missed the front end of one-and-one free throws.

Glenelg, which had won five straight and averaged 54 points doing so, failed to make its final eight shots. Biggs missed off an inbounds pass near the basket with 11 seconds, and Young's desperation full-court shot at the buzzer fell short.
