In the process of giving the home fans last Friday night at Newport High School’s Spangler Court one heck of a show, and maybe a heart palpitation or two, the Cubs girls basketball team showed off its resiliency in fighting to the very last second of a hard-fought 56-55 overtime victory over Estacada in a thriller of a 4A non-league contest.

Things looked bleak early on for the home team, when the Rangers raced to a 9-0 lead behind a trio of 3-point baskets in the first three minutes of action before the Cubs found their footing.
