There's No Time for Overtime!

Last night's boys' Semifinal game was a very close game. We lost in overtime 68-70. It was a very exciting game and the gym was jam packed with excited fans and parents. In the first half we were winning by roughly 8 points; somehow Cave Hill came back and we were neck and neck into overtime. Going into overtime the score was 62-62 and both teams scored. At the end, they scored and we just couldn't catch up.
Good Job Boys and Good Luck Girls!
