Leesburg, VA (Feb 20, 2016) – The gym was packed for the Conference 14 tournament championship. Could the upstart Potomac Falls Panthers continue their amazing run from a play-in game to a championship? Or, would their momentum stop at Stone Bridge?
Chas Sumser was there to cover the action and posted a photo gallery including 112 images.
For three quarter of the game it was difficult to insert any space between the two teams. Both teams played physical and consistently well on both ends of the court. At the end of the first quarter the Bulldogs held a one point lead, and at the end of the third quarter Potomac Falls was ahead by the same margin.
The game finally swung late in the fourth quarter when the Panthers opened up a five-point lead forcing Stone Bridge to have to foul to try to get back into the game. Although the strategy ultimately failed, the final score is not indicative of just how close this one was. Both teams advance to regionals.
Final score: Potomac Falls 72 – Stone Bridge 62.
