In two exciting games tonight, both the Girls and Boys Varsity teams won their playoff games and advanced to this years Finals.
The girls played a very game Girls team from Presidio Hill School. Synergy jumped out to a 10-0 lead and withstood an outstanding gritting performance from PHS. There were several lead changes that had the large crowd in attendance on their feet throughout the game. The girls from Synergy put on a late spurt and held on for a win going away 33-27.
The boys also played another close an exciting game. The boys from SF Friends were very much deserving of a place in this Semi Final round. The game went back and forth from the very beginning. Synergy held a 16-14 halftime lead in a game that was not decided until the last 2 minutes of the game. When it looked as though Synergy would take control of the game and win going away, SF Friends had something else to say about that. They continued to fight back with clutch shooting and timely defense to stay in the game. The Synergy Boys showed why they were seeded #1 late in the game and stepped up their defense and offense to close the game out with a 33-26 victory.
The teams in both games need to be commended for representing their schools very well. It was truly a night to remember.
The Finals will be tomorrow night at the Ella Hill Hutch Community Center. It is located on the corner of McAllister and Webster.
The Girls play at 6:00 p.m. and the Boys play right after at 7:15 p.m. It should be a great night. If you can, please come out and support both teams. It means a lot.
