Eastern senior Katie Ernstberger hit two free throws Tuesday night with one-tenth of a second remaining to send the Mid Southern Conference showdown against Charlestown into overtime.

With the score tied at 58-all and just under 10 seconds remaining in over-time Ernstberger again drove the lane, this time there was no foul. Her shot was long, but came off the rim into the waiting hands of fellow senior Rachel Hamilton.

Hamilton grabbed the ball and laid it up as time expried, sealing the 60-58 victory.

With the win, the Lady Musketeers improved to 9-5 on the season and Charlestown fell to 8-5.

The Lady Pirates will be back in action Friday at home against Providence.

Eastern's next game will be Tuesday, Jan. 21, at Austin.

A complete recap of the game will appear in the print editions.
