— The girls basketball teams from Tonganoxie High and Eudora didn’t let the blasé atmosphere of a practically empty gym and a seventh-place game stop them from producing a dramatic finish at the Paola Invitational on Friday afternoon.

The game came down to the final possession, when the Cardinals’ Anyssa Mays knocked away a Chieftains in-bound pass with 1.7 seconds remaining to help Eudora escape with a 40-39 victory.

After Tonganoxie senior guard Andie Jeannin banked in a three-pointer with 3.5 seconds left, Eudora (2-2) threw the ball in bounds, where Jeannin and Jenny Whitledge forced a held ball, giving possession back to Tonganoxie (0-3).

With no timeouts remaining, the Chieftains tried to run one of their baseline out-of-bounds sets, but couldn’t get the ball to Lauren Hall at the top of the key.

Whitledge tied the game at 36 with a layup at the 1:30 mark, but Eudora took the lead for good on a baseline jumper from Jennifer Bowser with 24 seconds to go.

Cardinals senior Sydney Schmille scored inside with only eight ticks remaining to provide EHS with just enough points to leave Paola with a victory.

Hall, a Tonganoxie senior guard, led all scorers with 11 points.

Eudora’s Schmille, who scored 10, was the only other player in double figures.

Eudora will travel to Silver Lake on Tuesday.

Next up for Tonganoxie is a Tuesday game at Perry-Lecompton.
