Patriots emerge as Region 2-A titlists; Lady Bobcats place second


“Another major factor in our win was the way we took it to them in the final quarter as by aggressively attacking the basket we drew several fouls that resulted in us going to the line several times.”

In making sure victory was in the cards for his team, Marshall turned in his second highest scoring performance of the season — a 44-point effort topped only by his 48-point regular season showing against Fitzgerald.

Lonnie Outlaw, who in Friday night’s 79-57 region semifinal win over Dooly went over the 1,000 points mark for a career, had 11 points in this game for a current total of 1,024. Quez Mahoganey added 11.

Leading 17-16 after the first quarter and 38-31 at the end of the second, the Lady Bobcats had to be feeling pretty good about their chances of not only avenging last year’s title game loss to Taylor but also of capturing a region crown for the first time since Dooly schools were consolidated in 1981.

The prospects for victory began to dwindle, however, in the third stanza that saw the Lady Bobcats’ edge cut to just two, 54-52, and disappeared completely when the Lady Vikings outscored them 17-14 in the last eight minutes.

As has been the case so many times in the past, the free throw and foul situations proved costly to the Lady Bobcats. Dooly was charged with 23 personals that led to 18 of 46 charity shot attempts. Taylor, in contrast, was whistled for 13 fouls that resulted in 8 of 17 firing by Dooly.
