ROGERS HERITAGE--With time ticking away in the second quarter, the Rogers Heritage Lady War Eagles called a play clinging to a three-point lead. A shot resulted in a clank off the front of the rim, but the ball bounced around until it went into the hands of Kayla Richardson, who banked in a shot as time expired and gave her team the momentum it needed to earn a 55-52 victory over Bentonville West for its first conference victory Friday night.
