    TELL CITY—Forest Park outscored shorthanded Tell City 9-1 in overtime to beat the Marksmen 49-41 in PAC girls basketball Thursday.
    With the score tied 40-40, Tell City center McKenzie Hayes was charged with a foul with three-tenths of a second left in regulation.
    Forest Park missed both free throws, so the Marksmen were able to take the game to overtime. But the bad news for them was that was Hayes’ fifth foul, so they had to play the extra period without her and without Jami Rowe, who had fouled out earlier.
