Harlan trailed 16-10 after one quarter and 32-25 at halftime. The Lady Dragons pulled even at 40-40 after three quarters.
Harlan built a three-point lead late in regulation on two free throws by Noe, but Lincoln pulled even on Ally Lynn’s 3-pointer with 53 seconds to play. Each team missed a chance to take the lead in the final seconds.
A 3-pointer by Aymanni Wynn put Harlan ahead to stay in overtime. Noe hit three of four at the line and Leah Davis hit two of two to clinch the victory.
