It was a neck-and-neck 55-50 win for the Lady Centurions on Tuesday night.
Victoria St Joseph was on the STJPII campus for the first time since the Flyers 42-20 win over the Centurions last season.
In 2016, the (35-5)Flyers went on make it 16-0 in District, and eventually reached the Final Four of the State Tournament.
This year was a different story. Under first-year Head Coach Marco Hernandez, the Lady Centurions were prepared for the very physical Flyer Girls Basketball Program.
(Video Below) With a 51-50 Centurion lead and 32 seconds left in the contest, a missed Flyer freethrow turned into a Centurion fast-break which was met with a flagrant foul from the Flyer's on Kyrsten Cooper, resulting in an ejection.
The Lady Centurions then took advantage of more key fouls, ending the contest with a 55-50 Centurion win.
