Droste’s late bucket sends Pewamo-Westphalia to the regional finals

KENT CITY, Mich. -- Down by one point late in the fourth quarter, Pewamo-Westphalia junior Ellie Droste drove to the bucket, scored, and was fouled.  She hit the free throw, and Kent City's shot to tie at the buzzer missed, and the Pirates advance to the regional final with a 35-33 win.

Droste scored a game-high 15 point for P-W, who trailed 9-8 after the first quarter, 17-14 at halftime, and 27-25 after three quarters.

Pewamo-Westphalia will play Calvin Christian (12-11) Wednesday night in the regional final at Kent City.

Zara Weber led the Eagles with 13 points, finishing a brilliant career.
