Arlington Catholic, a private Catholic high school located in Arlington Massachusetts, has won the state's Division 2 title after a 43-35 overtime win against Longmeadow High School.
Arlington Catholic beat Longmeadow 43-35 after four minutes of overtime play.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - It was a hard game for AC, as the two schools exchanged leads throughout. AC 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.
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.
While Longmeadow ruled the regular game, AC owned the overtime with six points before Longmeadow could even manage to score. A set of free throws sealed the deal, and AC walked away the state champions after four minutes of overtime.
AC had three players score in the double digits. Emma Lutz and Demi Fogarty each had 10, while Maura Buckley led the team with 12.
