Elizabeth Seton defeats H.D. Woodson in girls' basketball City Title Game
March 15, 2010Elizabeth Seton High School
The girls' City Title Game started off as a game of one-on-one. In the end, only Elizabeth Seton's Tyaunna Marshall was still standing.
Marshall, a Georgia Tech recruit, and H.D. Woodson's Ronika Ransford, who is headed to Georgia, dueled into the second half before Ransford banged her head on the court and left with a concussion midway through the third quarter. The Warriors failed to convert a field goal after the All-Met's departure and the fifth-ranked Roadrunners pulled away for a 51-30 victory Sunday afternoon before an estimated 3,500 at Verizon Center.
Seton (24-8) capped a remarkable turnaround from winning just five games four years ago to claiming its first Washington Catholic Athletic Conference and City titles since 2001.
No. 10 Woodson (21-6), meantime, was denied its chance to become the first girls' team to win three consecutive City Titles.
The game started with all the makings of a showdown between two of the area's top guards. Ransford scored all 13 of Woodson's first-quarter points; Marshall had 12 of Seton's first 20 points. Woodson took a 24-22 lead into intermission and the stage appeared set.
