Lexington led most of the way at River Bluff on Tuesday but could not close out the win in regulation. They took a 9-point, 41-31 lead to the 4th quarter but as they did throughout the evening, the Lady Gators went on another run scoring 28 points to 19 by the Wildcats to force overtime.
River Bluff hit a 3-pointer to open the extra frame but Alexis Sexton answered with a Lexington three. From there the Wildcats got a pair of lay-ins from Lindsay Garner and held on for the win.
Sophomore Alexis Sexton and freshman Lindsay Garner each posted career highs with 32 and 22 points respectively.
Lexington travels to White Knoll Friday evening hoping to avenge their only Region loss so far this season.
