"We've come a long way this season and wanted this win so bad," said O'Shea who led all scorers with 13 points. "Beating top-seeded Scotia [in Tuesday's semifinal round] to get to this game really gave us confidence."
With 2:50 remaining, Lea McClain's two free-throws trimmed Averill Park's lead to 40-30. But the Warriors answered with two free throws each by Bridget Carney, Alison Nunziato and one by O'Shea.
A swarming Averill Park defense held McClain, Mohonasen's leading scorer this season, to 11 points. She was the only double-digit scorer for the Mighty Warriors.
Julia Mai chipped in with 10 points for Averill Park (11-11). Carney controlled the boards, grabbing 14 defensive rebounds and five offensive.""
