FAIRVIEW -- 
Lutheran West came out victorious after a thrilling finish versus Fairview on Saturday afternoon. The game came down to the last seconds in this Patriot Athletic Stripes Division rivalry, but the Longhorns were able to outlast Fairview.
After losing the lead for the first time since the opening period with 1:35 left in the fourth, the Longhorn defense held off Fairview from scoring again as Fairview clung to their two point lead. Then, with four seconds left on the clock, the gym went silent as junior Lindsey Tomola hit the game-winning three-point shot.
The first half of the game was a close fought battle between the Longhorns and Warriors. Both teams played fairly even, but the Longhorns were able to gain the advantage late in the second quarter and took a three point lead into halftime.
LW continued to build on that lead in the third quarter, and headed into the fourth with a seven point lead and the momentum on their side. However, the tide of the game changed after a couple of calls went against the Longhorns, sending Fairview on a run that ended with them taking the lead. Nevertheless, the Longhorns regained their composure and took the ball to their end and scored the last basket to gain the win.
Tomola led Lutheran West with 13 points. Senior Katherine Konstan was the other lone Longhorn in double digits, scoring 10.
