Winter 2023-24 5/6 Grade Division Finals

Another game that saw the top two seeds battle for the championship pitted the #1 seed Falls Church against the #2 seed Celtics. The Celtics struck first, making a free throw about two minutes into the game. But Falls Church quickly answered, running off five straight points before a Celtics basket stopped that streak. Falls Church then ran off another streak, this one of six points, and at the two minute mark they held an 11-5 lead. The final two minutes saw more scoring, resulting in a Falls Church 16-8 lead at the end of quarter one. Falls Church then came out firing in the second quarter, scoring 30 seconds in and then with another basket extended their lead to 20-8 with just under five minutes left. The Celtics scored their first basket of the second quarter with a few minutes remaining, to which Falls Church responded with yet another streak, taking a nineteen point lead with 30 seconds left. But the Celtics kept fighting and finished the half strong, scoring the final three points for a 29-13 Falls Church lead at the half. The third quarter started again with Falls Church scoring quickly, then the teams spent the bulk of the third quarter going back and forth exchanging baskets. But while both teams were scoring, Falls Church was able to slowly add to its lead, with an extra point here and two extra points there. They carried a 40-22 lead into the final quarter. Showing why they were the second seed, the Celtics came out in the forth and ran off three straight points to control the first minute and a half. But Falls Church answered the attempt to climb back into it, scoring nine points in a row to take a 49-25 lead with just over two minutes remaining. The Celtics showed their resolve by scoring six of the final seven points, but in the end it was Falls Church winning the game by a score of 50-31. Way to go Falls Church on taking home the Little Legends Winter 5/6 Division title!
