LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - It was a hard game for AC, as the two schools exchanged leads throughout. ACĀ  set pace early on with a 9-5 lead in the first quarter. Taj Lewis, who scored a game high of 17 points, set out and scored five points to put Longmeadow in the lead.

Longmeadow kept up the pace and set up a lead at 18-11 in the second quarter before AC shortened the lead to 18-15 late in the quarter.

Prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

After the half Longmeadow continued to play hard and made a 24-17 lead. AC was able to add another four points but still ended up trailing 23-21 at the start of the fourth.

Longmeadow led throughout the fourth, until AC managed to tie up the score and surpass Longmeadow by two points. With just 10 seconds remaining, Lewis managed to sink a basket to tie it all up, sending the game into overtime.
