Holy Family came into the tournament with one loss in regular season play to Holy Trinity. Our Lady of the Lake had three regular season losses: St. Pius X, Holy Trinity and Holy Family. In tournament play this week, Our Lady of the Lake upset the number two seed, St. Pius X to advance to the championship game.
Our Lady of the Lake shot out to an early lead in the game and finished the first half 15 – 10. With three minutes remaining in the third quarter, Holy Family lead 17 – 16 and kept the pressure on as the quarter ended 23 – 20 Holy Family.
The fourth quarter began with two rapid baskets for each team and a foul drawn by Holy Family that they could not convert on. Quick paced, helter-skelter, dribbling theatrics, put back attempts were the name of the game for these feisty fifth grade boys whose antics were entertaining and fun to watch.
Holy Family’s Luke F. had the hot hand for the day swishing 3 two pointers at critical moments. Game ended with a final score of Holy Family 40 – Our Lady of the Lake 27.
