Free throws played a big part of this game in both the number of attempts and shot made as both teams hit less than 50% at the line.
Feliz Espinoza put up a three point shot from the right wing and well outside the three point line with only 2 seconds left in the first overtime to tie the game at 44.
Shania Dorrance put in two free throws to give Raton the lead in the second overtime. It would be the winning two points of the game.
By the end of the game Raton had lost four of their key players to fouls Mariah Romero, Sarandon Walton, Mikala Vertovec who fouled out first and Michelle Guara who got into foul trouble early
Taos coach Robert Trujillo had studied his opponent knowing who were shooters and who to get into foul trouble early. He was still studying video before the game.
