Portage 45, Poynette 39
Sophomore McKena Yelk scored a game-high 15 points, including the game-clinching 3-pointer, to help lead the host Warriors (2-7) past the Pumas (4-3).
Poynette led 39-36 with 6 minutes, 15 seconds left but were held scoreless over the final stretch. A pair of free throws by Yelk and a layup by senior Hanne Anderson after being fouled put the Warriors in front 40-39 with just over 4 minutes left. Anderson missed the free throw but Yelk gathered the rebound, dribbled to the corner and buried a 3-pointer for a 43-39 lead with 3:55 remaining.
From there, the Warriors defense stood tall, including holding the Pumas to just two shots in the games final 45 seconds to hold on for the win.
Sophomore Molly Anderson scored a team-high nine points to lead Poynette. Junior MacKenzie Roth added 10 for the Warriors.
