Sidney's Kelsey Knight, right, battles for the ball with Kimball's Madison Biesecker during Thursday's game. Free throw shooting was crucial for the Lady Raiders as they held off the Lady Longhorns to win, 52-47.

With less than 17 seconds remaining in the game, Sidney freshman Janay Brauer approached the free throw line.

With apparent ease, she calmly hit two shots – both swishes – giving the Sidney High School girls' basketball team (8-3, 1-0) a 5-point lead to secure its victory.

The perfect free throws marked her third and fourth within 10 seconds during Sidney's 52-47 victory over the Kimball High Lady Longhorns (6-1, 1-3) on Thursday night at the Cabela's Athletic Center.

In a physical and fast-paced game where the lead changed hands numerous times, the victory was sealed at the line.
