In a memorable finish, the Turner Trojans capped off a late second-half rally with a go-ahead three-point basket by Jenn Njoo with four seconds remaining to take down the top-seeded Clinton Cougars in a Division 3 regional final on Saturday at Clinton High School.

Clinton led until the final four seconds for the entire game, using a stifling halfcourt defense to limit the Trojans to only seven made baskets through the first 25 minutes of the game. The Cougars got a number of timely baskets from Liz Kalk, Jayden Nortier, and Elli Teubert to lead by as many as 13 in the second half, before the Trojans made their move.

With 4:36 left in the second half, Turner erased a double-digit deficit to get within one point late. With 8.7 seconds left, Sabirna Fitzgerald took an inbounds pass that went halfway up the floor, found Njoo, and the rest is history.

Njoo made two other second-half three-point baskets to help the Trojans come back and take their first lead of the game in the final seconds.

Turner will face Martin Luther in a sectional semifinal on Thursday at East Troy High School.

TURNER: Olivia Tinder 15, Jenn Njoo 9, Marlee Young 9, Sabrina Fitzgerald 6, Baylee Windsor 4

CLINTON: Jayden Nortier 12, Liz Kalk 10, Elli Teubert 8, Hannah Welte 4, Addyson Ciochon 4, Olivia Roehl 2
