When you are the defending state champ, other teams place a big target on your back, and that showed last night in the Bellwood-Antis Lady Blue Devils’ hard fought win in the PIAA playoffs over Mount Carmel at Mifflin County High School.

B-A was trailing by one with 24 seconds left after Mount Carmel’s Brooke Bernini’s drilled a three pointer.  Then, it was Alli Campbells turn.

Alli drew a foul the ensuing possession, and made two-of-two free throws, to take the lead, and ultimately win the game by a score of 47-45.

Campbell led the Lady Devils with a game-high 25 points, while Emilie Leidig added 11.

In the state playoffs, night-in, and night-out, you are going to get your opponent’s best, and last night was no exception.  B-A, the District 6 champs, were heavily favored over the District 4 champ Lady Tornadoes.

Mount Carmel’s resilient defense kept them in the game, as they held the high powered offense of B-A to nearly 20 points below its average.

The Lady Tornadoes limited B-A to 8 first-quarter points and led 20-18 at halftime. B-A came back to take the lead in the third, but the game stayed tight until the very end.

B-A will face the second-place finisher from District 3, York Catholic, which advanced with a win over Holy Cross, in the PIAA 2A Elite Eght on Friday back at Mifflin County High School.
