Game Comments: In the 7-1 State Championship game, the Lancers of Decatur Our Lady of Lourdes battled the Bluegirls of Carthage. This was both teams first appearance in the 7-1A state title game. Carthage applied their full court pressure defense and outscored Decatur 15-5 in the first half of play. In the second half of play, Carthage slowed the pace down against the 2-3 zone of the Lancers. They worked the ball around the horn looking for the best shot and running time off the clock. Very few points were scored in the third quarter due to the much slower pace of the game. In the fourth quarter, Decatur switched to man to man defense, but the ball handling of the Carthage guards were still able to run time off the clock and get the open basket. The Lancers outscored the Bluegirls in the fourth quarter, but the deficit was too much to makeup.
Leading scorer for the game was #22 Halee Ward of Carthage. This is first 7-1A state title for the Carthage Bluegirls. Congratulations to both teams on a great season.
