Slicing a 13-point deficit to four in the closing seconds of the third quarter, the Mountain View High girls basketball team seemed to seize the momentum. But with one improbable shot, Cupertino snatched it back.

Guard Sayesha Chaudhary banked in a 3 from well beyond the arc, barely beating the third-quarter buzzer. It ignited a 14-2 run for the host Pioneers, who prevailed 55-40.
