Austin Packers girls basketball team rallies to defeat Rochester Century 61-59 Tuesday evening

The Austin Packers girls basketball team was looking to get back in the win column in Rochester Tuesday evening versus the Century Panthers in a Big 9 Conference matchup, and it was the Packers rallying from a 13-point halftime deficit to stun the Panthers by the score of 61-59.

The Packers trailed 39-26 at the half, but led by junior guard Ajiem Agwa, who tallied 20 points, and by guard Quinn Osgood, who nailed four 3-pointers on her way to 16 points, the Packers were able to rally to earn a split of the regular-season series between the two teams.  Besides Agwa and Osgood, guard Marissa Shute tallied eight points, Addison Walsh scored six points, Atee Obang added five points, Gracie Arndt chipped in four points, and Mackenzie Brede scored two points in the comeback win.

Austin is now 5-7 in the Big 9 Conference and 6-9 overall on the season, and the Packers return to action in Rochester Friday night versus the John Marshall Rockets, with tip-off at 7:30 p.m. that evening.
