Leesburg, VA (Feb 17, 2016) – The Broad Run High School Spartans travelled to play the Tuscarora High School Huskies in a boys and girls varsity / regular season finale / senior night double-header. Chas Sumser was there to cover the action and posted a photo gallery for the girls game (116 images), a gallery for the boys game (95 images), and a special “senior night” gallery (21 images).
In the girls game, the Spartans roared to an impressive first quarter lead closing the period at 15-4. They held the lead at halftime, but the Huskies had cut into the margin pulling it back to just seven points. After intermission, however, it was all Tuscarora as they flew all around the court, scoring 25 points in the third quarter alone.
Final score: Tuscarora 61 – Broad Run 52.
The boys game was a thriller. Tuscarora took the early lead and seemed to be in command as they headed into the halftime locker room in front, 33-28. But the Spartans came out fighting and gradually chipped away at the Huskies’ advantage. Late in the fourth quarter, Broad Run went ahead with just a minute remaining. But Kyle Copeland swished a three-pointer from the corner to secure the win for Tuscarora.
Final score: Tuscarora 52 – Broad Run 51.
