Paige Nemeth scored 15 of her game-high 22 points in the third quarter as visiting Flat Rock rallied in the second half for a 36-33 win over host Riverview on Thursday evening.

Nemeth brought the Rams back with an incredible performance in the third quarter. She knocked down big shots and whenever the Pirates made a run, the senior guard was there at the other end to answer.

She kept us in it especially when we were struggling offensively, said Flat Rock Coach Marc Villemure. She hit some timely baskets when we got down. Shes a good shooter and we definitely needed the offense tonight and she provided it.

Nemeth scored 20 points in Flat Rocks win over the Pirates earlier in the season.

Its always tough to play here at Riverview and they always play hard so its nice to get this win, Villemure said.

Its been quite a turnaround for the Rams who lost their first nine games of the season and now stand 7-7 in the Huron League and 7-12 overall.

We had that rocky start, but weve gotten a lot better, Villemure said. We have a young team and played some good teams to start the season with a lot of games on the road so that was a bad combination.

Im real proud of how the team has responded.

Riverview junior guard Sophie Fiema had a solid night, finishing with a team-high 13 points. Fiema had the ball in her hands and fired off a triple just before the buzzer but had to force the shot against the Rams who defended the final play well.

It was a good high school basketball game, Riverview Coach Rob Sauter said. We played really hard and Im proud of the effort. Both teams played really hard.

The Rams beat the Pirates by double digits the first time around. But this time Riverview played a much stronger game.

We had a ton of turnovers the first time we played them, Sauter said. We took care of the ball better tonight and really battled.

The Pirates fall to 6-12 on the season.

Riverview opened the game with a triple by Fiema that Flat Rocks Holly Hunt answered at the other end with a three. A triple by Nemeth late in the quarter gave the Rams a 12-5 lead which they took into the second quarter.

Riverview came rolling back in the second quarter as Serena Haube scored inside and Fiema nailed a triple to give the hosts a 14-12 lead. The Bucs scored the first nine points of the quarter before Nemeth knocked down a jumper to tie the game at 14-14.

Fiema scored the final basket of the second quarter to send Riverview into halftime with a 16-14 lead. The Rams, with just two points in the second quarter, need an offensive spark.

Enter Nemeth.

In the third quarter, the Pirates continued to find the offense. Fiema and Casey Kolniak hit back-to-back three pointers to give the hosts a 22-14 lead. But the Rams came right back with Nemeth scoring consecutive three-point plays and then a triple to cut the lead to 24-23.

Two more triples by Nemeth gave the Rams a 30-28 lead.

The game headed to the fourth quarter with Flat Rock leading 32-28.

Baskets by Karmyn Cartrette and Fiema tied the game at 32-32. A layup by Emma Cerroni gave the visitors a 34-32 lead. With 1:50 left in the game, Nemeth scored inside to make it 36-33.

With 1.6 seconds left in the game, the Bucs had the ball at midcourt. A strong in-bounds pass set up Fiema with a game-tying shot from the right wing but it didnt fall as the Rams walked off with a hard-fought victory.
