Another Amboy-Eastland girls basketball game came down to the wire Wednesday night in Lanark, as the Clippers led by as many as 13 in the third quarter before the Cougars rallied behind six 3-pointers from senior Annika Myre. But Amboy closed it out at the free-throw line in the final minute to preserve a 41-39 victory in the battle between previously unbeaten NUIC South squads.

The Rock Falls girls basketball team was firing on all cylinders Wednesday night, building a big lead and cruising past North Boone 55-21 for a Big Northern Conference road win. All 11 players got in the game and scored for the Rockets (11-11, 2-3 BNC).
