City Section semifinal games were gut busters

Narbonne and Carson will face off for the City Section title next Saturay at the Galen Center after both won tight semifinal games last night. Here’s the low-down from the LA Times:

Carson defeated Washington, 44-42, Thursday night in a City Section Division I semifinal game at Washington High.

Reshanda Gray, the Marine League MVP, converted a free throw to tie the score at 42 with 21 seconds left. Then Carson’s Chante Miles and Brianne Ingram each hit a free throw to lift the Colts.

Washington’s Kiana Furlow went in for a layup with the seconds expiring off the clock, but it was blocked by Carson’s Janitah Iamaleava.

In another semifinal, Narbonne took a 50-47 overtime victory against host Taft.

The title game is completely up for grabs. Both teams are pretty much an even match all the way down the line. Unless someone completely doesn’t show up next weekend, it should be a good game.
