Hollivay leads Heritage girls to 40-38 OT win over Oak Hill Tuesday night

January 26, 2011

A couple of weeks ago, the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders traveled to Heritage Academy and held the 6-foot-3, and heavily recruited, Rachel Hollivay to just 10 points. In the first two periods of Tuesday night’s rematch at Oak Hill, it looked like it was going to be another one of those nights for Hollivay.
The Lady Patriot came to life, however, in the second half of the game. It took all of regulation and one overtime period, but Heritage eventually outlasted the Lady Raiders 40-38.

Last Friday night, Zach Bryan’s technical foul late in Oak Hill’s last district game at Manchester, might have been the difference in his team’s three-point loss to the Mavericks. On Monday night, the senior took a shot at redemption, tipping in the winning two-point shot at the buzzer for a 47-46 Raider win over the Hebron Christian Eagles.
As a team, Oak Hill struggled the final three quarters of the game to redeem themselves from a start that was nothing short of dismal against the visiting Eagles.
