ROCHESTER — Austin senior Steph Justice sealed Austin’s sixth straight win with a lay-up with five seconds left in a 60-57 win over Rochester Century (6-7 overall, 3-3 Big Nine) in a girls basketball game on the road Friday.

The Packers (6-7 overall, 3-4 Big Nine) had trailed 36-29 at the half, but they rallied to get back in the game and Justice broke a 57-57 tie with her late drive.

“We switched from a zone to man-to-man in the second half and we played much better defense on their scorers,” Austin head coach Todd Johnson said. “This was a great win for us.”

Justice finished with 18 points and Jenna Svoboda added 24 points for the Packers.

Austin 29 31 — 60

Century 36 21 — 57

Austin scoring: Jenna Svoboda, 24; Steph Justice, 18; Jocelyn Sheehan, 6; Merideth Fritz, 4; Mer Gach, 4; Alex Hansen, 3; Taylor Lady, 2; free throws: 48 percent (14-for-29)
