McManus Chemical Wins At SFDS Summer Classic Finale
The 25th Annual St. Francis Summer Classic came to a close on Wednesday night with the Girls High School championship game.
McManus Mechanical duplicated the feat of their red shirted counterparts in the Graybeards Young Guns division by overcoming a last place regular season finish to capture the title.
They began their march with a thrilling 58-53 win over Ryan's Rebels in last Monday's semifinals as Megan McGoorty scored 17 points; Keira McBrien had 16 and Molly McNulty added 10. Animal Hospital of the Rockaways looked like world beaters in the second semi-final as they rolled to a 20-point lead at halftime and repelled second half rallies by Flynn and Flynn to win 58-43. Jamecia Forsythe dropped in 19 points, Taylor Conroy chipped in with 17 and Kathryn Edwards had 12.
In the final on Wednesday, only Forsythe could get it going for the Animal Hospital team in scoring 18 points. McManus got contributions across the board with Megan Mc- Goorty directing the attack and scoring 13 points. Allison Dunn added 8 as McManus Mechanical won the low scoring affair, 41-30.
McManus Mechanical Coach Forrest Finkelstein's champions are Stephanie Cosenza, Maria Fraschilla, Jeanette DiMola, Tara Rock, Laura Patterson, Ciara Rayder, Keira McBrien, Megan McGoorty, Allison Dunn, and Megan McGoorty.
Congratulations to all champions and we will see you next year for the 26th Annual St. Francis Summer Classic.
