SECOND QUARTER: Holy Redeemer took control of the game adding two hoops to the score and outpacing St. Clare 8-4.  St. Clare added three buckets in the second quarter but were in the red at the half time buzzer as Holy Redeemer put 13 points on the board. Final second quarter: 17 – 10 Holy Redeemer.

THIRD QUARTER: St. Clare missed to early free throws but came back with a two pointer in the first minute of play to reduce the deficit to 5.  With 5:25 to go, St. Clare had held Holy Redeemer scoreless, going ahead by a point 18-17.  The crowd roared!  Not a team to cower, Holy Redeemer sunk a 3 pointer to go ahead by 2.

FOURTH QUARTER: St. Clare quickly answered with their own two points to tie it up and we were in the midst of a barnburner for sure!  St. Clare added another two with 2:20 in the game to go ahead by 2-22-20!  With 1:11 in the game, Holy Redeemer drew a foul but could not convert.  Last minute helter skelter and long passes contributed to turnovers by both teams.  St. Clare went to the line to shoot 1 and 1 but could not convert.  Holy Redeemer dribbled the floor twice looking for a go ahead score, successful on the second attempt leaving 22.2 on the clock and two points ahead 24 – 22.  St. Clare strategized for the last several seconds of the game for the final basket to tie.  Lauren drew a foul for St. Clare and sunk the first shot.  She missed the second basket and that was all she wrote.

FINAL 24 – 23 Holy Redeemer.
