: Congrats to the lady lions and coach Judi Edwards for overcoming a 20 point 3rd quarter deficit and sending her into retirement with another city championship!! She coached a perfect second half, hat's off to her and her team, they never quit. Next year they should be the favorite to repeat... 2017/18 1) Fairfax 2) Narbonne 3) Granada 4) Elco 5)westchester or pali.
With all the lackluster games on Saturday, this one was crazy. Very entertaining and exciting. Certainly worth the drive and entry $$!
Game was going pretty much as I expected, with Pali doing what they do and building a lead.
However, Lair wouldn't be denied and just kept driving, driving, driving and either getting to the bucket, getting fouled, or making a nice pass for a bucket or foul.
Meanwhile, Pali just kept depending on Gipson and Williams to just jumpers or maybe the odd drive to the bucket.
The shocking thing was Pali was stubborn and would not switch to a zone to prevent or at least slow down the continual drives and make Fairfax beat them from the outside - and Fax was not making outside shots.
Someone please explain why Pali made ZERO adjustments in the second half?????
And I was absolutely SHOCKED when Gipson missed 4 straight FT's. I don't think she missed 4 all year. LOL
Congrats to Fairfax. They created a bad match up for Pali and they didn't adjust. Fairfax really played their hearts out!
Good luck to all the City teams in State - they will all need it.
Hard to see any of them coming close to a win.
Teams are too high, especially in comparison to the SS.
Open - none
D1 - Fairfax and Palisades
