The St. John Fisher Girls remember too well the painful loss of 2015 where they were involved in the famous 6x overtime (CYO Record) Championship game with St. Pius X. Coming into the game this year, SJF had lost twice in regular season to Holy Family.
St. John Fisher came off the bench on fire and ran up a first quarter lead of 9-4.
With 1:15 in the second quarter, Holy Family went ahead for the first time 11-9.
The third quarter was scoreless until the final 3 minutes when Holy Family led a run on points. St. John Fisher answered back and went ahead on two free throws by Josie Napoli with 1.3 seconds left in the quarter.
With 2:47 remaining in the game, Holy Family tied the game then went ahead on a steal. The momentum had swung toward Holy Family and the crowd was behind them. St. John Fisher, not a team to give it up, kept fighting and tied it back up at 17 all. Molly Grant powered a shot through the hoop with 23 seconds left for 2 points giving SJF the advantage at 19 – 17.
FINAL: 19 – 17 St. John Fisher
