Junior Eliot Dojutrek got Prospect's girls basketball team off to a rousing start as she hit a buzzer-beater for a 50-48 win over Oswego at the York tournament on Monday night.
"It was a battle from start to finish but we were able to come out on top," said Prospect second-year coach Marie Miller. "I could not be more proud of the leadership and confidence I saw in Eliot tonight.
"She set a goal for herself this season to finish her takes and did she ever deliver tonight."
Dujotrek finished with 13 points.

"Hats off to Oswego," Miller said. "They are very well-coached, disciplined and a hardworking team. They gave us a game from start to finish and I think we are both better for it."
