Fourth Quarter Dooms Vikings at Fenwick

It was a three-plus minute stretch the Geneva girls basketball team would like to play over in its nonconference game against Fenwick.

After trading baskets against the Friars to start the fourth quarter, Geneva was hit with a haymaker in the form of a 16-0 run that decisively made the last tie of the game academic.

Fenwick (18-3) never looked back in posting a 78-63 win in Oak Park.

"We worked our butts off the first three quarters," said Geneva post Sami Pawlak, who scored 16 points and grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. "It was our best game of the season. We knew they were going to take a lot of shots. They average almost 80 points a game."

Maggie Reilly hit two 3-pointers during the Friars' unanswered blitz that turned a 51-51 game into a 67-51 Fenwick lead.

"Our main goal is to push the ball up the court as fast as possible," Reilly said of the Friars' high-octane attack. "We look to find the hot hand. We were just clicking (during the run)."

Geneva (12-10) fought back from an 8-point second-quarter deficit to take a lead of as much as four in the third quarter; the Vikings, who trailed 38-32 at the break, outscored the Friars 17-9 in the third quarter.
