NBC tops Arlington
Emme Timm's 3-point attempt in the final seconds missed as Arlington dropped a 30-27 home game to North Bend Central on Monday.
Timm finished with a game-high 16 points, but the Eagles struggled offensively without junior Britt Nielsen in the lineup. They last led at 2-0 and never pulled even with the Tigers (12-8 overall) despite trailing by no more than six points for the rest of the game.
AHS struggled to earn defensive rebounds, too, and trailed 7-4 after one quarter, but pulled within one point at halftime when North Bend fouled Timm on a half-court heave at the buzzer. The sophomore point guard made all three free throws going into the break.
Coach Wolf's squad, however, didn't score its first points of the third period until there was just 2:14 left on the game clock. Timm scored a bucket and missed the and-1 free throw, but made another 2-pointer when her team pulled down the offensive rebound.
The Eagles trailed just 20-19 and again cut the Tigers' lead to one at 28-27 when Timm made a 3-pointer with 50 seconds remaining. North Bend's Lauren Sterup and Linsey Emanuel made free throws down the stretch, though, holding off Arlington.
Macy Wolf was the Eagles' second-leading scorer, finishing with four points, while Valeria Carvajal had three. Austyn Flesner and Taylor Arp scored a bucket apiece, too.
Sterup scored 14 points to lead the victorious Tigers. Just three NBC players scored overall.

Celebrating their seniors — Arp and Flesner — and honoring the memory of AHS community member lost too young — Merritt Gilmore, the Eagles bounced back with a 55-32 home win against Plattsmouth on Tuesday night.
Timm scored 20 more points, while Wolf finished with 14. Arp scored 13 and Flesner had seven as Arlington picked up its 18th win of the season.
The Eagles led 16-8 after one period and 34-20 after two, going onto win their second-to-last game of the regular season by 23 points.
