Megan Peschong hit a 10 foot jump shot with :07 remaining to lift Class 2-A #14 Okoboji to a big road win against Class 1-A #15 Central Lyon on Friday night 50-49.  The game was close the entire way, with the no team leading by more than 6 points.  Okoboji used a quick start to take a 16-11 lead into the 2nd quarter but Central Lyon would go on a 10-0 run to end the half and take a 29-23 lead into the break.  The 3rd quarter continued to see both teams battle each other as the score was deadlocked at 36-36 entering the 4th quarter.  The lead would go back and forth in the 4th quarter and Central Lyon would take a 49-48 lead on a free throw by Sarah Halse, who lead all scorers with 28 points.  The Pioneers would answer with Peschong’s late bucket and would get a stop on the last possession to pull out the victory.  Peschong led Okoboji with 22 points, 13 rebounds and 2 assists; Kailye Hromatko would add 8 points and 4 steals, Shaelyn Adams chipped in with 6 points and 4 rebounds and Brenna McCabe played a great defensive game, ending the night with 6 rebounds and 2 steals.  Okoboji improves to 13-3 overall and 11-2 in the Siouxland Conference.
