Borgia only led for 3.1 seconds of Tuesday’s girls basketball contest with Villa Duchesne.

But it was the final 3.1 seconds and the Lady Knights (1-1) earned their first victory of the season, 49-48.

Senior Katie Lindemann pulled down an offensive rebound and scored on the putback with 3.1 seconds to play, capping Borgia’s comeback after trailing the entire contest.

Lindemann then sealed the victory by intercepting a pass near the free-throw line on the defensive end to secure the win.

“It was just like we designed it!” exclaimed Borgia Head Coach Stacia Parsell. “We played from behind in both of the games we’ve played so far and I think this is the longest time we’ve had a lead. We’re still learning. We have a lot of inexperience and growing pains. We’re just going to have to deal with it.”

Lindemann closed the game with a double-double, recording 15 points with 10 rebounds. She also had two steals.

“Katie Lindemann is someone we’re really going to have to rely on this season,” Parsell said. “She’s the right person to handle that.”

Borgia trailed 9-7 after one quarter and 23-19 at the half. The Saints led after three quarters, 41-33.

Borgia chipped back several times in the game, but Villa Duchesne always found a response to build the lead back up.

Villa Duchesne sophomore guard Grace Lombardo was an unstoppable force. She led all scorers in the game with 26 points while hitting six three-point baskets. She also had four steals, three rebounds, two blocked shots and an assist.

Part of Borgia’s problem came from turnovers. The Lady Knights were able to defensively cause turnovers, but struggled to control it and made 23 turnovers in the contest.

“We were not taking advantage of their aggression,” Parsell said. “That’s something which was a little disappointing. We’re just learning every day. To come out of here with a win is fantastic and it’s really going to help everyone’s confidence.”

The Saints held a 48-47 lead and had the ball in the final minute. Borgia had to foul multiple times to put Villa Duchesne on the free-throw line with the bonus situation, but the free throw missed and Borgia pulled down the rebound.

“So many times you see that strategy and it doesn’t pay off,” Parsell said. “We came from behind and it actually paid off for us. We’re starting to show some maturity.”

That led to Borgia’s go-ahead basket and subsequent successful defense to close out the game.

Junior Janie Arand led Borgia with 21 points despite sitting out a good portion of the first half due to foul trouble. She hit four three-point baskets while pulling down six rebounds with two assists, two steals and a blocked shot.

“Janie had to sit out for a while with fouls and that hurt our rhythm a little bit,” Parsell said.

Junior Emily Grahl closed the game with seven points, four assists, four steals and one rebound.

Junior Baylee Godat scored four points with one assist and one steal.

Senior Morgan Spradling ended with two points, two rebounds, two steals and an assist.

Sophomore Molly Arand did not score, but provided stability after her sister had to sit down with foul trouble. She closed with four assists and one steal.

“Molly made a huge difference in the last three minutes of that game and really changed the tempo of the game,” Parsell said.

Others playing were Cassandra Halsted (one rebound), Madison Wehking (one assist) and Alexis Sine.

Following Lombardo in the scoring column for the Saints was Morgan Schlegael, who netted nine points with two rebounds, two steals and an assist.

Kendra Hercules and Alex Roth each had four points. Roth contributed 12 rebounds and five steals.

Catherine Wagner scored three points while Rachel Arnold ended with two points.

The Lady Knights hit the road Friday for their first Archdiocesan Athletic Association game. Borgia visits Bishop DuBourg with freshman action beginning at 4 p.m. The varsity game should begin around 6:45 p.m.

“We know it’s going to be a little bit different,” Parsell said. “It’s going to be a little different to play some teams we haven’t played before. It’s going to be a big game at their place and it will be exciting to see how this team reacts to being on the road.”
