A girls basketball: Seffner Christian fades down the stretch

class A

Seffner Christian fades in the fourth

BRADENTON — The momentum shifted, while the lead vanished. That's when Bradenton Christian's Liz Capps and Maria DeKuiper kicked it up a notch.

The duo combined for all of the Panthers' fourth-quarter points, holding off Seffner Christian 66-56 in Tuesday's Class A region semifinal.

DeKuiper netted a career-high 36 points, but none was bigger than her bucket with 4:40 left in the fourth.

The basket gave BCS (26-3) the lead for good, keeping the Panthers unbeaten at home and against Class A competition this season.

The Crusaders trailed by nine at halftime. Then SCA stormed back as senior sharpshooter Arielle Jadlowski dropped 20 of the Crusaders' 23 third-quarter points.

Jadlowski, who finished with 31, drained a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from just past half-court to end the quarter.

    MINNEAPOLIS — While the Rays made some good defensive plays, threw a couple of big pitches when they needed to and got a few, and just a few, key hits, there were some obvious things they did wrong that led to them losing Saturday's game to the Twins 5-3:
