HSGBB: Young’s late bucket pushes Seahawks past Trojans

Hilton Head High’s girls survived a fight to the finish in their regular-season finale Wednesday, as Lynda Young scored the winning basket with four seconds left to give the Seahawks a 37-35 win at James Island.

Young and Janiya Ferebee each scored 12 points to lead the Seahawks, who trailed 18-14 at halftime but pulled even at 26 heading to the fourth. That’s when Young took over, scoring half of her point total in the final period, including the game-winner, giving the Seahawks their first victory since Jan. 5.
