Kenyon-Wanamingo upset the second-ranked Goodhue girls basketball team Friday 78-67 in overtime in Kenyon courtesy of Shelby Auseth and Megan Quam and ended its nine-game winning streak.
Auseth scored 33 points and Quam added 19 for the Knights (10-2, 2-0 HVL) in the win.
Mikayla Miller led Goodhue (10-2, 1-1 HVL) with 21 points, but the Wildcats played without senior Erica Tipcke for most of the second half as she sat because of foul trouble.
“We just didn’t have a lot left for overtime,” Goodhue head coach Josh Wieme said. “We really had the game in our hands and let it go even with our best player on the bench.”
Tipcke fouled out of the game with six minutes left in regulation and finished with 14 points. Kali Ryan added 10 points and Mikayla Tipcke had eight.
Despite Erica Tipcke’s absence the Wildcats held a three-point lead with less than two minutes to play, but Goodhue missed a free throw and fouled on the ensuing rebound to allow the Kenyon-Wanamingo a chance to cut it to one.
The Knights hit one of two free throws and tied it up when Auseth drove to the hoop.
The Wildcats hit just 32 percent of their shots from the field but went 30 of 38 from the free-throw line in the loss.
