DARLINGTON - Darlington senior Amy Jorgenson was plenty sore Friday night, but that didn't stop her from putting a hurting on the Mineral Point girls basketball team.

One night after emerging from a serious car accident without major injuries, Jorgenson hit five 3-pointers and poured in 33 points as in the Redbirds' 43-35 victory against Mineral Point in Southwest Wisconsin Activities League action.

"The ironic thing about it is last year she went ahead and did the same thing," Darlington assistant coach Riley Fitzsimons said. "Her house burnt last year the night before a game and she went out and scored 30-plus points. (Thursday) night, she flipped her car and totaled it. She went to the hospital and didn't have any major injuries.

"She was just in that groove and trying not to concentrate on her soreness, but just concentrate on her shot."

Jorgenson hit two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to make sure there would be no Mineral Point rally.

Darlington (13-8, 9-4 SWAL) hit 10 of 14 free throws in the game.

Hannah Lawinger scored 10 points for Mineral Point (9-12, 6-8).
