DAVISON — If it were October and Allison Maiorana scored 3 points to give Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes the lead it would be after the senior kicked a field goal on the football field.

However, it was a different kind of three Maiorana scored to give the Lakers the lead for good in a 51-43 overtime win over Kingston in a Class D girls basketball quarterfinal Tuesday.

With her Lakers trailing for the first time since the first half Maiorana knocked down her triple while getting fouled — her only three points of the night — to give her squad a 42-40 lead early in the extra frame.

“Honestly, (Maiorana) had a bad shooting game,” Lakes head coach Steve Robak said. “She made some poor decisions going to the hoop and the shot wasn’t falling. But, over the course of her career she’s made some big, important threes late in the fourth quarter and in overtime. None were bigger than that one, obviously.”

Maiorana would miss her free throw, but Maddison Oshinsky would make a jumper on the next Laker possession and Lakes made 7-of-11 free throws in overtime to secure the victory.

The game went to overtime after Lakes got sloppy with the basketball late — committing seven turnovers in the final frame of regulation — and sent Kingston to the free throw line 14 times in the fourth quarter when the Cardinals outscored Lakes 15-9.

The Lakers sloppiness in the fourth quarter was a reversal of earlier in the game as Lakes forced the Cardinals into 24 turnovers on the night, but only three in the final 12 minutes of the game.

“We got out of our defensive assignments for some reason,” Robak said. “We started letting some of their key girls do some things that we had tried to take away. In overtime we got back to it again, and it worked. Thankfully, we composed ourselves enough down the stretch.”

Sophomore Tiffany Senerius led the Lakers in scoring with 17 points including eight early in the second quarter that helped the Lakers start the frame on a 11-2 run and take a 21-13 lead. Oshinsky finished with 10 points.

Davison was led on the score sheet by Sarah Savage who scored 14 points and made 9-of-11 free throws.

The Cardinals had a chance to win the game in regulation when they drew a foul and two free throws with six seconds left trailing 39-38, but could only make the second attempt.

This is the second straight year Lakes has eliminated Kingston (20-4) in the quarterfinals, though this win by the Lakers was much less shocking than the team that had a .500 record after winning a regional title last year. The Lakers (20-4) will have another rematch when they return to the Breslin Center for a semifinal game against Pittsford (25-0).

“It’s super exciting,” Lakes senior Alex Troy said. “Over the last year we have wanted to get back to the Breslin Center. We want to play Pittsford, even though they killed us last year, just because we want to prove to people that we can do it.”

Last year Lakes was overmatched and lost 57-26, but Robak doesn’t expect that to be the case this year.

“It was a goal all year to make it back (to the Breslin Center),” he said. “Not only to make it back, but to do something beyond what we did, so we have our work cut out for us. We probably weren’t ready to be there last year. This year if we come ready to play we can give them a game. We’ve got to go there and do what we need to do to prove we should be there.”
