Greeneville's Lady Greene Devils picked up only their second win of the year, but it was a dandy in a 62-59 overtime victory over South Forsyth (Ga.) Thursday afternoon.

The game was a back-and-forth affair from the start, but it took a good rally in the fourth quarter by the Devils to even get the game to an extra period. The Lady Eagles were up 45-38 with less than four minutes left on the clock, but the Devils charged back to get even at 47-47 with a minute to go.

Forsyth got a free throw from Ryane Williams followed by a bucket from Sara Idris to go up 50-47 with 35 seconds to go. But Greeneville's Leah Fillers threaded in a 3-pointer from the corner with 25 seconds left to knot it at 50. The Eagles had three shots to win it in regulation but all were contested and failed to connect.

In overtime, the Eagles went up 57-53 with less than two minutes left, but again GHS came back with Alana Collins providing the fireworks with back-to-back buckets. South Forsyth missed the front end of a one-plus free throw with 42 seconds left and Sydni Lollar boosted the Devils into a 60-59 lead by making two foul shots with 22 seconds left.

The Eagles then made a turnover on their way into front court, and Collins converted two foul shots with five seconds left. A last second 3-point attempt to tie it at the buzzer failed by the Eagles.

Lollar had 16 points, five rebounds and seven steals to lead Greeneville (2-7). Leah Fillers scored 15. Ashlyn White had nine points and eight rebounds, and Shevon Weems also came off the bench to score nine.

South Forsyth (7-6) got a huge effort from Zoe Maisel with 18 points and 16 rebounds. Williams scored 13, Idris had 12 and Ashley Briendl added 10. The Eagles had 11 blocked shots in the game. The Greene Devils had 13 steals.
