2A-11 district basketball: Northside Christian 48, Out-of-Door 36

ST. PETERSBURG — Northside Christian and Sarasota Out-of-Door battled through three quarters before the host Mustangs took advantage of two costly fouls, including a technical on Out-of-Door's Mara Falahee, to pull out a 48-36 win Saturday night and capture the Class 2A, District 11 title.

Northside Christian was led by the starting duo of sophomore Heather Percival and eighth-grader Deja Swinton. Percival scored 19 points off six field goals and six free throws. Swinton had 14 points, including a 3-pointer from half court as the buzzer sounded to end the third quarter.

Mustangs sophomore Rachel Boyette had eight points before fouling out with a little more than two minutes left in the game.

"We played like we were young, meaning we didn't execute as well as I would have liked," Northside Christian coach DJ Jackson said.

Senior starter Rachel Cannon led Out-of-Door with 20 points, while junior starter Falahee had 10 points, including a 3-pointer before fouling out with about a minute and a half left in the third quarter.
