Londonderry Defeats Bedford 57 - 56 For State Title

Post  Tuesday and Friday on Sun Mar 16, 2014 10:13 pm

Brittany Roche hit a huge clutch 3 pointer with 12 seconds left in the game to give Londonderry a 57 to 56 victory over defending state champion Bedford. It was the end of Bedford’s 39 game winning streak. With a little over a minute left in the game Aliza Simpson came up with a key steal and was in trouble with 2 defenders on her as she fell back towards the end line. The senior smartly called a time out. Londonderry went 84 feet with the possession and took time off the clock. A couple of times the Lady Lancers almost took drives to the hoop, but continued running time off the clock and it became apparent they were holding for the last shot.

The ball was then tight roped on the Londonderry offensive baseline and was kicked out to the corner to 6’0 junior Brittany Roche. She hit an ice 3 in front of her own bench with 12 seconds left. Bedford called TO and had to go the length of the court. They got caught up at the sideline in front of their bench. Bedford called another TO. With 4 seconds left Bedford’s Purcell heaved a desperation 3 and Tucci laid the ball in. The Lancer sideline exploded. Legendary John Fagula received a win and a State Title in his last game in a storybook Disney-like ending.

Here’s the Box score:

Lond – 9 17 12 19 - 57
Bed - 12 10 18 16 - 56


Lond – Simpson 16 Luckhardt 10 Evans 7 Roche 7 Coffey 6 Caron 5 Marett 2 Burke 2 Berube 2

Bedford – Brown 13 Glennon 11 Collins 9 Purcell 8 Driscoll 7 Tucci 6 Hunter 2


Lond – Game FG% 45% on 20-44. FT 10 – 13. 28 rebounds.

Bedford – Game FG% 36% on 18-50. FT 17-28. 33 rebounds.

If I could have Ray Allen or Brittany Roche in a late game situation I'm going with Brittany Roche every single time
