NORWOOD — Wednesday’s Yadkin Valley Conference road game for the North Rowan girls’ basketball game came down to the wire at South Stanly.
A low-scoring affair turned in the final 20 seconds when Rebel Bulls’ forward Mattie Hinson took a pass from guard Sadie Lee and scored with 16 seconds left, lifting South to a one-point win over the Cavaliers, 36-35.
Makayla McDaniel led North Rowan (4-13, 3-8 YVC) with eight points.
Hinson was the lone player in the game to reach double figures, scoring 19 points to lead South Stanly (6-9, 3-6).
The Cavaliers took an early lead in the first quarter but the Bulls rallied to lead by three points after one quarter, 13-10.
South led until midway through the fourth quarter when the Cavs’ Tanajah Robinson scored to put North Rowan ahead, 30-28.
Natavia Taborn tied the game with 26.2 seconds left with two free throws, 34-34. After Hinson’s bucket, Taborn again went to the line for two free throws after nearly hitting a layup, which would have led to a chance to take the lead on an old-fashioned 3-point play.
However, Taborn missed the first and made the second free throw, then put South’s Lulu Harris for a 1-and-1 with 3.1 on the clock.

Harris missed the foul shot and McDaniel rebounded the ball, passing to Taborn. She dribbled to center court but could not get a shot away before the clock expired.
North Rowan hosts North Moore on Friday night.

NORTH ROWAN (35) — McDaniel 8, Hillie 8, Taborn 7, Robinson 7, Reid 4, Sherrill 1.
SOUTH STANLY (36) — Mattie Hinson 19, Lee 6, Midgett 4, E. Crump 3, H. Crump 3, Lee 2, Harris, Wall.

North Rowan    10    4    11    10 — 35
South Stanly     13    5    10     8 — 36
