Lady Patriots Advance to Invitational Final
November 17, 2012By Shane Lightfoot of Bethesda Christian High School
The Bethesda Lady Patriots basketball team defeated Southside Christian School 43-16 to advance to the championship game of the BCS Invitational tournament being played today at Bethesda Christian School. The 2-0 Lady Patriots will face Suburban Christian School in a rematch of last year's Invitational final, which was won by Bethesda. That game starts at 6:30 p.m.
Suburban, 1-0 on the year, defeated Fall Creek Academy by a score of 44-37 in the second semi-final game this afternoon. Fall Creek led most of the way, but fell behind with 3:00 minutes left in the fourth quarter and finished the game with only two players on the floor because three of their five active players fouled out of the game in that pivotal final period.
Southside Christian and Fall Creek Academy will meet in the Consolation Game at 5:00 p.m.
