UTICA — Despite an off night offensively, the Utica girls basketball team was in position to win a sectional title.
The Redskins trailed fifth-seeded Marion Pleasant 36-35 with under two minutes to go. But, the Spartans made the plays when they needed to and escaped with a 41-36 upset of the fourth-seeded Redskins in Division III Sectional final play Saturday.
“It’s hard to coach these girls for four years and then see it end this way. I really thought with the talent we had on the floor, I thought we could make a run in the tournament,” said Utica coach Terry Logue.
