"Jamestown was up by eight at the half, " Prairie Home Coach Linda Scott said. "We started a comeback with a press. There were five lead changes in the last 1:30. Jamestown is a good team and it's always hard to defeat a team three times in a season. They were out to beat us tonight, they had a good game plan and they made us score 15 feet from the basket. The biggest shot of the night came on a break away layup by Kim Hettinger with five seconds left to play, which put us up by one point. That's a shot Kim will remember the rest of her life, a story she will tell many times I'm sure. It was a great team comeback."
