Timber Creek overcame the loss of one its top players on Saturday afternoon to top host Collingswood, 43-38, in a nonleague girls' basketball game.

Brittany Martin, a sophomore guard, injured her lower back and was taken to the hospital via ambulance after she was fouled on a layup in the second quarter. Chargers coach Donna Clark said Martin bruised her tailbone and would be released from the hospital on Saturday afternoon. There is no time table for a return to the team.

"It's huge because she's averaging almost 20 points per game," said Clark. "She's usually our point guard and our offense runs through her. But, the team just kept fighting and played good defense."

In the first overtime, Desiree Furbert was fouled as she knocked down a jumper from the foul line with 8 seconds left to force a second extra-period. The junior forward missed the ensuing foul shot. She scored nine of her 13 points in the fourth quarter and first overtime and also grabbed five offensive rebounds.

Amanda Riff sealed the win as she knocked down all four of her foul shots in the second overtime to finish with nine points. The junior guard added three steals and shot seven for eight from the line for the game.
