St. Andrew Nativity School came into the tournament seeded #4 and upended the #1 seed, St. Clare in the second game of the bracket. St. Anthony, the number two seed won both of their great 8 bracket games leading to the championship game.
St. Anthony’s Nicholas scored the first bucket three minutes into the game. By the end of the first quarter, St. Anthony lead 14 – 7. The second quarter saw St. Anthony picking up a greater spread over St. Andrew Nativity with a final half time score of 32 – 16. The end of the game, however, St. Andrew Nativity was picking up the pace.
The second half began with St. Anthony sinking their first shot and stealing a couple of balls from St. Andrew. Both teams traded shots back and forth as St. Anthony maintained the lead 40 – 16.
By the end of the fourth quarter, St. Anthony had outdistanced St. Andrew Nativity by a score of 54 to 26. A fun game to watch as St. Andrew was not a pushover. Both teams had very athletic players but St. Anthony had the height (this year).
