Scoreboard Watching from 4AA semifinals

Wow, the girls AAAA championship has just ended with Central pulling the upset. The bigger story there is the officiating at the end. An absolutely brutal continuation call with 1 minute left gives Central the lead and then a questionable jump ball call with 35 seconds left. Central had the arrow and that's your ball game. But South had their chances with a lead so they can't complain.

As to the AA semis at Holy Angels, St. Bernard's suprisingly rolls over Concordia 98-75 thanks to 24 each from Jordair Jett and Trent Davis. 5 players in double figures for the Bulldogs. Zach Towle with 19 for the Beacons.

In a major shocker, Breck absolutely destroys Holy Family 73-46. 5 guys in double figures for Breck led by 19 from Blake Johnson. 10 from Trent Johnson for Holy Family. A friendly Breck fan sent me this. I've slightly modified it for posting here, but all of the information I got is included.

*****
The Mustangs totally played like they had something to prove after last year, when they led Holy Family by 12 and lost in OT, not to mention in light of all that's happened in the last month. Breck led by 12 at the half and got the lead to 20 before Holy Family made a run and got it down to 12 with 10 minutes left. They would get no closer.

Holy Family simply couldn't play at Breck's pace. No answer for an aggressive 2-3 zone. Trent Johnson picked up his 4th foul early in the 2nd half and Cameron Cain fouled out with 8 minutes left. Thomas Smolenski, Blake Johnson and Matt Vargas hit their shots (after some early shakiness) and Alex McDonald forced the Fire guards into mistakes.

Holy Family is a classy team. The played hard and clean the whole game. They had to throw up too many outside shots with Trent Johnson on the bench or playing cautious and were they cold.

*****

The Czar's predictions go 2-2 as I got MCA and St. Bernard's right, but Breck and MTS wrong. Overall, 51-15 as I haven't counted the Friday night games yet.
