In the opening 90 seconds of this past Wednesday's PIAA Class AA second-round game between Chartiers Valley and Beaver at North Allegheny High, the Bobcats' Lexi Posset kick-started the Bobcats' offense with a 3-point basket that tied the game at 3-3.
But less than a minute later with 3:35 left in the first quarter of a game Beaver would eventually lose 47-29, Beaver's fortunes took a quick downturn as Posset was fouled when driving for a layup by Colts' center Nicole Olkosky. The Rider recruit injured her left ankle when her momentum carried her into the wall behind the basket.
"When Lexi went out, I don't want to say the game was over," said Beaver coach Greg Huston. "But it put a huge dent into what we were trying to do."
Posset remained on the ground for several minutes and was assisted to the bench, holding her left leg off the ground all the way to the bench.
