Girls basketball: Peterson beats the buzzer in Braves’ win


BENSON — Emma Peterson’s runner in the lane fell at the buzzer and the Braves came away with a 63-62 non-conference win over Hancock on Thursday.

Trailing by one, Benson had fewer than four seconds left in the game to go the length of the court for a final attempt. Peterson took the inbounds pass and raced down the court, floating up the game-winner as time expired.

“It was a pretty exciting game and a nice win,” said Braves head coach Chelsea Stiel.
