Maconaquah won it’s 10th game of the season and first Girls Basketball Sectional game since 2002 as the Lady Braves defeated Frankfort 53-43. The two teams played last Tuesday and in last year’s Sectional with the Lady Hot Dogs victorious but after a 3 day weather delay it was Mac’s night at the historic Case Arena. Frankfort started with 4-0 and 6-4 leads, but Mckenna Wilson and Tara Wagoner hit consecutive 3-pointers to give Mac its first lead at 10-6 before Frankfort closed the quarter leading 13-10. The lead stretched to 19-12 before the Lady Braves started their rise with an Ashley Jess to Alex Merritt basket, followed by a Lilly Maple to Merritt basket, which was followed by Maple and Merritt putback buckets and a 22-20 halftime deficit. A Wilson 3 put the Lady Braves up again at 26-24 before a Maple 3 made it 31-28 and gave Maconaquah the lead for good. After the 3rd quarter ended 36-30 Frankfort closed to 3 but Mac went on a 17-10 run to secure the win. The stats-
