NORTH MANCHESTER -- Losing is never fun. Losing at the buzzer magnifies the heartbreak.
Saturday night, Northfield broke the hearts of the Manchester High School girls' basketball team with a break-away lay-up at the buzzer to steal a 36-34 Three Rivers Conference game.
With the Squires leading 34-33 with under a minute left, Northfield's Hope Unger tied things up with a 1-2 trip to the free throw line.
The Squires moved the ball around and worked for a last shot. With four seconds remaining, Rae Bedke had her jumper go in and out, and it looked like overtime was in the future.
