KINGSPORT — Lindsey Overbey’s short jumper off an Emily Armstrong assist with 7.2 seconds remaining lifted the Lady Falcons to a 51-50  Big 7 victory at the Buck Van Huss Dome. 

Overbey scored 14 points to lead the Lady Falcons (21-5, 6-2), who beat the Lady Indians 58-50 in Church Hill last month.

Post Savannah Felgemacher scored eight of her 12 points in the second half for Volunteer. Freshman Josie Salyer also added 12 points. Armstrong hit three 3-pointers, finishing with nine.

Volunteer trailed 29-20 at the half.

Dobyns-Bennett (13-8, 3-5) led 34-31 at the end of a third period that segued strangely into the final stanza.

Tribe post Alex Anderson, who sat out the first meeting at Church Hill due to a concussion, was whistled for a charge late in the third. It was her third foul.

Anderson scored eight points and pulled down 10 rebounds before fouling out with 2:30 remaining in overtime.

Felgemacher, whose free throw with 43.1 seconds showing in regulation locked the game up at 45, picked up her fifth foul a half-minute after Anderson sat down.

Cortney Depew, who scored 10, remained on the floor for D-B. But the overtime was destined to be determined by guards.

Madi Kilby, who hit five 3-pointers in regulation to lead the Tribe with 15 points, was a major concern for Myers. But the Lady Falcons kept her covered up. D-B took its last lead, 50-49, on a Depew free throw with 31.5 seconds remaining.

After Overbey’s go-ahead bucket, Kilby made the in-bounds pass to Sasha Morrisette.  The Lady Indians guard attacked the paint, hoping for a bucket or a foul. She got neither as time expired.

The Lady Indians shot 7-of-20 from the free throw line.

In the boys game, John Fulkerson scored 16 points as the Indians picked up a 76-41 win over the Falcons.

Cason Byrd scored 13 points for D-B (12-8, 6-2) and Josh Holt scored 12.

David McFarland and Logan Boyd scored nine apiece for Volunteer (10-11, 2-8).
