Ike beats New Berlin West to clinch title tie

Game no decided until fourth quarter

Feb. 21, 2013

 New Berlin Eisenhower went on a 6-0 run to start the fourth quarter and defeated crosstown rival New Berlin West, 52-42, at West in the regular season finale.

Leading 34-30, going into the final period, Sammy Kozlowski hit a jumper and Erin Ganzke hit two  free throws and a jumper and suddenly it was a 10-point game.

After a 14-14 first quarter, Ike took a slim 22-21 lead into halftime and increased that lead to 34-30 going into the final period as Katie Lang, who led the Lions with 14 points, scored on a drive, was fouled and sank the free throw, starting a 9-0 run.

West, who was led by Beth Ver Haagh with 20 points, cut the lead to 49-41 with 1:18 left, but it was too little too late.

Ike and Pius now share the title (16-1) while the Viking finish 11-6.
