Winter 2023-24 3/4 Grade Division Finals

The two top seeds in the 3/4 Division squared off for the title, as the top-seeded Flaming Falcons took on the second-seeded Hard Knocks. Not surprisingly, both teams came out a bit tentative offensively, as they worked out the nerves of playing for a title. The Flaming Falcons scored first, making two free throws, but didn't score anymore points the remainder of the first quarter. Hard Knocks got their first points on a bucket at the three minute mark, but that was the extent of theie offensive output, and the first quarter ended tied at 2-2. The second quarter started the same with two quick points scored by the Flaming Falcons, and then no more points by either team for the next four minutes. But this time it was the Flaming Falcons who scored again, running off nine straight points, which were all the points scored in quarter number two. This gave them an 11-2 lead at intermission. Quarter three started the same as the first two quarters, with a very quick (10 seconds in) basket by Flaming Falcons. Hard Knocks finally added to its point total, making a free throw with just over six minutes remaining in the quarter. Flaming Falcons then ran off four straight, and after the teams exchanged baskets they held a 19-5 lead at the three minute mark. But Hard Knocks, like they had all season, showed their toughness, and they finished the quarter strong, outscoring the Flaming Falcons in the final few minutes 6-2, including a three pointer they nailed at the buzzer! With a Flaming Falcons 21-11 lead, both teams clamped down defensively in the final quarter and no one scored for nearly the first four minutes. The first points were two Flaming Falcons free throws, to which Hard Knocks responded by sinking back-to-back-to-back buckets to reduce the deficit to six with under a minute to go. But a Flaming Falcons basket, along with a favorable clock, resulting in the Flaming Falcons taking home a 25-17 victory. Congrats Flaming Falcons on winning the Little Legends Winter 3/4 Division Championship!
