Last-Second Layup Takes a NY Roll
The girls basketball varsity traveled to Long Island on Sunday to compete in a Philly-New York showcase event. The idea, of course, is to have our good teams play theirs in competitive games. Can't get better than a one-point result. One slight problem: Despite the Quakers' strong effort, the winner was Monsignor Scanlan, of the Bronx, by 51-50.
Senior Hannah Fox paced PC with 24 points. Junior Lexi Hnatkowsky mixed five points, seven rebounds and six steals. Others with notable stats: Senior Ayanna Matthews (eight points), junior Julie Webb (seven, six rebounds) and junior Mireyah "Rey" Davis (four, 10 boards).
New York rules call for the use of a 30-second clock. Fox drained a three-pointer with 48 ticks remaining to draw the Quakers within 51-50. The girls then played effective defense and got a last-second chance to win. Davis' layup off a hard drive rolled around the rim, and off. So close!
