Edinburgh Lancers’ comeback defeats Mohawks

Down by 12 points late in the third quarter, the Edinburgh girls basketball team staged an improbable comeback against Mid-Hoosier Conference rival Waldron and posted a 58-53 win against the visiting Mohawks on Monday night.

This isn’t the first time Edinburgh has had to overcome a deficit this season, but this time they got it done.

Asked to explain the Lancers’ penchant for rallying from deficits, coach Bob White said, “I do not know. We seem to always play to the ability of who we play, and then we wait until the very end to try to make it up. But the good thing is we did not quit.”

As the final period opened, Waldron stretched its lead to 42-32 on a fast-break layup by senior guard Lindsay Montgomery.
