Comets Take Championship!

The game started off with a fast and furious pace, with both teams trading baskets, Lynx leader April Ebanks was unstoppable as was the Comet's Chloe Powery;  the Comets took a four point lead in the first quarter, only to see that lead to diminish to just 1 point by half time.

The second half was much like the first, neither team backing down from the challenge and neither team giving up;  the Comets outscored the Lynx by just 1 basket and althought the Lynx came back with a vengence in the 4th quarter, Powery and O'Connor's Scoring kept their team ahead until the final whistle was blown and the Comets held on to a nail biting 3 point lead to end the game and capture their historic first championship for the under 19 competition.

For the Lynx: April Ebanks finished with an amazing performance of 21 points, 28 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals.  Tenisa Richards added 10 points and 5 rebounds while Jade Wheeler pulled down 13 reobunds. 

For the Comets:  Finals MVP Chloe Powery finished with a game high 28 points, 17 rebounds and 2 assists; Khailan O'Connor finished with 10 points and 8 rebounds while Ashley Ebanks added 8 points and 12 rebounds.
