Bayard free throws sink Creek Valley

Creek Valley's Andi Ortgies battles for the ball against Bayard's Liz Marker. Such battles, and high-pressure defense, set the tone for the MAC Tournament opener Monday.
Bayard's Lady Tigers went 7-for-10 from the free throw line and added one field goal, while Creek Valley couldn't part the net in overtime, giving Bayard an upset win over the fourth seed Lady Storm.
The teams squared off as one of four scheduled first round games to kick off the girls side of the MAC Tournament Monday.
Pressure defense was the norm for nearly the entire contest, with only a handful of trips down the court by either team going unchallenged. Over time the physical game took its toll on both lineups, with five players, three for Creek Valley and two Lady Tigers, fouled out.
