Evenly matched teams kept pace with one another through the first half with lead changes and ties throughout.  With a last second St. John Fisher shot, they took the first half 10 – 6.

Both teams scoreless first 2 minutes of second half until St. John Fisher hit the mark for two.  St. Pius X had two breakaway layups and a steal converting on one to advance to 8 points near the minute mark in the third quarter. SJF’s “Allie”, a power player for sure, hit a critical 2-point shot with 10 seconds left following a few travel calls for her stutter steps.  The third quarter ended 14-8 St. John Fisher.

The fourth quarter maintained a 6-point spread after trading shots at 5 minutes left.  St. Pius X could not get the traction to give St. John Fisher a challenge for the balance.  St. John Fisher advance the lead to 9 until St. Pius X swished a two pointer to bring it within 7.  St. John Fisher’s “Allie” put in another quick 2 and brought it back to 9 with 1.25 left to play.  A last second three-point swisher by St. Pius X reduced the deficit to three.  Good games by both teams.
