After a slow start, the Northwest College women's basketball team rallied to send a Region IX playoff game against Western Nebraska Community College into overtime Thursday.

But despite a two-point lead late, the Lady Trappers could not hang on and were eliminated, 70-66, in Scottsbluff, Neb.

Down 10-4 after one quarter, Northwest outscored the hosts 22-12 in the second half.

Center Dallas Petties, who scored 13 points, sent the game into overtime with a late shot, but the Trappers were out-scored 12-8 in the OT.

Julynne Silva led Northwest with 19 points and 10 rebounds.
