Comets Take Championship!
The game started off with a fast and furious pace, with both teams trading baskets, Lynx leader April Ebanks was unstoppable as was the Comet's Chloe Powery; the Comets took a four point lead in the first quarter, only to see that lead to diminish to just 1 point by half time.
The second half was much like the first, neither team backing down from the challenge and neither team giving up; the Comets outscored the Lynx by just 1 basket and althought the Lynx came back with a vengence in the 4th quarter, Powery and O'Connor's Scoring kept their team ahead until the final whistle was blown and the Comets held on to a nail biting 3 point lead to end the game and capture their historic first championship for the under 19 competition.
