Makayla White scored only three points for the Horlick High School girls basketball team on Friday night. But her last point was crucial.

White made a free throw with one-tenth of a second remaining in the game to give the Rebels a thrilling 52-51 victory over Kenosha Bradford in a Southeast Conference game at Horlick. It was the conference opener for both teams.

White, a sophomore, went to the free throw line after being fouled while chasing after a loose basketball. Horlick coach Ambrial Sanders said she probably had more jitters than White when the latter went to the line with the game on the line.

“I was kind of nervous for her, because I don’t think she had ever been in a position like that," Sanders said. “I told her after the game, ‘Thank you for having ice in your veins.’ "

While White sealed the deal for the Rebels, who are 2-2 overall, sophomore Olivia Pitrof and senior Marissa Cartagena put Horlick in position to win. Pitrof scored a team-high 19 points, while Cartagena added 17 points, including 10 in the first half.

“She was our spark plug tonight," Sanders said of Cartagena.

“It was a really exciting game and a good win for us," Sanders said. “I’m very happy for the girls. It should help build their confidence."
