7th Grade Boys CYO Championship Basketball

Valley Catholic

Coach: Adam Miller

Players: Benjamin, Zachary, Ethan, Jordan, Ryoma, Jordan, Jonathan, Luke, Kavish, Reynard

St. Pius X

Coach: Jonas Cisneros, Lawrence Hart, Loren Hotchkiss

Players: Russell, Tyler, Josh, Parker, Ryan, Jonathan, Matthew, Drew, Carter, Luke, Jacob, Dylan

 

Quarter 1:  Back and forth, lots of running 7-4 Valley Catholic

Quarter 2:  Quick pace up and down the floor by two very agile teams of boys.  Bucket success favored Valley Catholic ending the quarter 21 – 8.

Quarter 3: St. Pius X made traction toward catching up and making it an exciting fourth quarter set up with their 3-poing last second shot finishing the quarter with a 26-22 Valley Catholic lead.

Quarter 4:  An exciting battle between both teams with fast action, quick passes but loaded also with turnovers and lost balls.  Ethan’s 3-point shots were critical.  With two minutes left in the game, St. Pius X began the foul strategy to provide opportunities.  With 1:42 Valley held the lead at 38 – 33.  Valley Catholic’s Ben had two free throws with 1:25 left in the game which, if missed would have opened a door for the charging St. Pius team to enter.  Ben closed the door with two buckets and St. Pius X could not get the traction going to open it up again.

FINAL: 43 – 33 Valley CatholicIMG_4836

Overtime 1:  (2 minutes)  With 42 seconds left in the first quarter, St. Clare scored one point on a one and one, leaving St. Pius X 35 seconds to battle back.  Pius was fouled with 31 seconds left in the game and they scored, squaring the game again at 9-9.  St. Clare with  19 seconds on the clock had another opportunity to score from a foul.  No luck.

Overtime 2: (1 minute) With 32 seconds left in overtime, St. Clare scored two points at their basket.  St. Pius could not convert on their foul throws following and had two opportunities to score with steals under their own basket.  A great game by both teams!
