Jaguars win title – after time runs out

29-27

 

All Wildcat guard Tatiana Morales of the Bearcats went to the free throw line for two shots, her team trailing by two, and the clock showing no time left in the game.    For competitors like Morales, it’s the opportunity for which players dream and with a packed gym looking on, the talented Spirit of the Wildcats winner stepped calmly to the line.

Although she could not tie the score and the Jaguars won 29-27, fans were treated to the most competitive championship game in years.

The game was televised by CAPS-tv and a schedule of replays will be announced by the league in a few days. DVDs will be available at the CAPS-tv office (Day Road, Ventura – across for Foothill Tech High School) in two to three weeks.

The teams played evenly through the first 17 minutes before pesky guard Hannah Garcia came up with multiple steals and fast breaks to push the Jaguars into a six point lead, a lead that was obliterated by the league’s leading scorer, Mariah Davis who tied the score at the start of the third quarter.

The Jaguars retaliated with All Wildcat point guard Sydni Sanchez who canned a “trey” from the right wing, then a two-pointer from the right lane despite the Bearcats’ Tyler Behrens hand in her face.

Not to be outdone, Davis launched her own three-pointer then hit two free throws and with a put-back by center Hunter Foley, the Bearcats dared to hold the lead at the end of the third quarter.

And then . . .

It was Ava time.

Ava Sivoraraj hit one free throw, then seconds later scored from the right short-corner. The Jaguars had the lead once and for all.

But, Ava wasn’t finished.

She grabbed a rebound on the right defensive block, rifled an outlet pass to Sanchez, raced to the left offensive block, took an assist  pass from Sanchez and scored at the end of the play she started.

The Jaguars were up by eight which was a good thing because they would not score again and the clock showed nearly three minutes left to play.

The Bearcats sensed opportunity and Morales was instant to the task. The fleet left-hander intercepted a pass and raced to a left-hand layup.  Davis found Foley alone on the weak block for another score.  Morales drove to the basket for two more, then dropped in a free throw after being fouled.

Seconds later, Morales took the ball from a sideline inbounds pass, drove to the basket, and pushed a shot toward the basket.  While the shot was deflected, a two-shot foul was called on Renee Cafarelli and despite the final buzzer ringing through the Ventura Missionary gym, the game was not over. Morales found herself standing alone at the free throw line.

Davis led all scorers with 12 points and had help from her Bearcats teammates Foley with eight and Morales with seven.

Sanchez led the Jaguars while Sivoraraj added six.

The win capped the Jaguars first-ever perfect season.

Bearcats to play Jaguars in championship final

 

In a battle of the tall centers, Hunter Foley and Gianna Falcoccia combined for 18 of the game’s 33 points as the Bearcats downed the Panthers 19-14 to advance to the championship game of the 22nd Annual Memorial Courtney Davis Wildcat Tournament on Saturday to play the Jaguars.

In the other semifinal, the Jags used some power of their own as forward Tatiana Rodriguez put up nine points to lead her team into Saturday’s final with a 24-19 win over the Leopards.  The Jaguars rang up a gawdy 19-5 lead by the middle of the third quarter, then misfired on all but one of their remaining shots.  In the meantime, Alexis Brady canned two three-pointers and Emily Guerrero notched a put-back in the key and the Leopards were on their way back.

If not for 3-out-of-4  shooting in the final minutes, the Jaguars might have lost in a stunning upset.

The Bearcats’ semifinal win over the Panthers was 40 minutes of sheer bedlam as neither team could get more than a three point lead until Foley produced the final margin with a score from underneath with just 74 seconds remaining.

There was enough agony for both teams as the Panthers broke away for numerous fast breaks but could not get the ball through the net and the league’s top scorer, Mariah Davis of the Bearcats, was softened by three early fouls.

Saturday’s game will begin at noon. CAPS television will begin setup at 10:30am and will utilize trained camera people from the Wildcats.  Replays of the game will be scheduled on CAPS and DVDs will be available in about two weeks.

Pre-game activities include games for Wildcat players.  Put together your own 3-on-3 teams or just enter some of the other shooting events.  Awards will be given to winners.
