(Griswold) Griswold earned a season split with Audubon in girls basketball last night by defending their home court.
Marquel Brunk's offensive rebound and put back in the final seconds helped Griswold complete a 46-44 comeback win over Audubon Tuesday night. Audubon had led the majority of the way including advantages of 30-24 at halftime and 38-34 through three. The Wheelers had built a seven point lead in the second half, but Griswold's defense stole the show in the fourth quarter. The Tigers held Audubon to just 1 point in the first six and a half minutes of the fourth quarter. Midway through the fourth a steal led to a Kayla Kirchhoff layup that gave Griswold their first advantage since late in the first half. Audubon got back into the game in the final minute when a Susie Bylund three-pointer followed by a Haillie Anthofer runner in the lane put the Wheelers up by 1 with about :15 remaining, but Brunk was able to convert a three-point play with just five seconds left to seal the deal.
Brunk led all scorers in the game with 17. Kirchoff was also in double figures for the Tigers with a dozen and Kinzey Nicklaus added 10. Griswold improves to 6-8 overall with the win. Bylund led Audubon with 16 points. Anthofer scored 14 for the 6-8 Wheelers.
