Boys Basketball Defeats TFA
The WPS varsity basketball team defeated The First Academy Royals last night in what many considered a preview of the Class 3a State Championship game. Going into the game, the Lakers and Royals were ranked #1 and #2 in Central Florida. There was standing room only in the gym before the game even tipped off, as everyone was expecting an exciting, competitive game.
The game lived up to the hype. There was exciting action up and down the court throughout the entire game, with the Lakers holding the lead most of the game, but TFA staying close throughout the course of the game. As the 4th quarter came to a close, the Lakers saw their lead diminish to 2 points before Xion Golding hit 2 free throws in the closing second to put the game away for good, giving the Lakers the 64-60 victory.
The #1 Lakers are now 16-1, and are back in action tonight against Legacy Charter.
