The Lady Mounties tried to get off a shot after Johnston’s game-winner but did not before the buzzer.

“The girls played really hard,” P-O coach Doug Myers said. “We played one of the tougher teams in the conference down to the end of the game. I was so proud of the effort.”

Abby Showers led the Lady Mounties (6-11) with 24 points. Cheyanne Cowfer netted 16 and Haylee Hayward added 13.

Mikaela McGraw’s 26 points led the Lady Dragons.
