MAPLE PARK — Last year the Lady Hubs lost 52-51 to the Lady Knights in a thriller, and this year, the Rochelle/Kaneland match-up had a similar finish.

Kaneland took advantage of Rochelle mistakes in the last three minutes of regulation and defeated the Lady Hubs 54-47 in Maple Park.

“This is the third game we have lost in the last few minutes because of our inability to handle the basketball,” said Rochelle coach Kay Dobbs, who was looking for her 300th career win on Tuesday. “It was a very disappointing way to lose the game.”

Senior forward Michelle Dobbs put Rochelle on the scoreboard first, knocking down a long two-pointer with her toes on the three-point line. Kaneland responded with a three-pointer to take the lead.
