Emily Eadie made a go-ahead free throw with 4.4 seconds left in the fourth quarter to help rally Sage Hill’s girls basketball team past Bishop Montgomery 56-55 at the Battle at the Beach tournament at Redondo Union High on Wednesday night.

Sage Hill (2-0) trailed by six points with about 1:30 remaining but rallied behind its defense and the foul shot by Eadie, who snapped a 55-55 tie.

The junior forward finished with a team-high 18 points to lead Sage Hill into Friday’s semifinals against Ontario Christian at 7:30 p.m.

Junior forward Annabelle Spotts added 15 points for the Lightning and freshman point guard Amalia Holguin chipped in 13.

Sage Hill and Ontario Christian, both in Division 1, clashed in the state regional playoffs last season. Sage Hill won 61-56 en route to winning the state crown.
