TELL CITY - Tell City hit 20 of 26 free throws to beat Forest Park 37-33 in PAC girls basketball Saturday.
The victory enabled the Marksmen to finish in a three-way tie for second place in the nine-team conference with Forest Park and North Posey, each at 6-2.
Gibson Southern won the conference title at 7-1, with its only loss coming against Tell City.
Forest Park outrebounded Tell City 37-23 Saturday and outshot the Marksmen from the field 28.9 percent to 24.2 percent.
"Looking at the stats, we probably had no business winning that game," said Tell City Coach John Lyons. "But free-throw shooting was the difference - we hit 20 of 26 and they hit 5 of 14."
Tell City trailed 16-12 at halftime but outscored the Rangers 13-7 in the third quarter to take the lead.
Lauren Goffinet scored 13 points to lead Tell City's balanced attack and Kara McClintic added 12.
McClintic hit 9 of 10 free throws and Goffinet hit 7 of 8.
Dana Sibrel grabbed seven rebounds and blocked three shots for the Marksmen. Goffinet made four steals.
Randi Uebelhor led Forest Park, 15-5, with nine points.
Kelsey Uebelhor, Amanda Hopf and Kelsey Vonderheide each grabbed seven rebounds for the Rangers.
Lyons said the Rangers' height advantage was the main reason for their big advantage in rebounds. "They have five 6-footers and had at least two in there at any point in the game."
