A girls basketball: Seffner hangs on against familiar foe

LAKELAND — Alexandra Hagel led Seffner Christian with 19 points and six rebounds Thursday as the Crusaders knocked off Victory Christian 46-44 in the Class A region quarterfinal for the fourth time.

Seffner trailed 11-3 at the end of the first quarter as the Crusaders hit just one field goal and made one free throw.

The Crusaders found their groove and knocked down five straight 3-pointers to end the half with a one-point lead.

Then it was back and forth until the buzzer.

Victory led by five with 2:22 remaining. A 3-pointer by eighth-grader Sabrina Whiting pulled the Crusaders within one with 19 seconds left. Whiting scored 14, including four 3-pointers.

Victory's Amara Mills missed a free throw with a chance to tie it with 16 seconds left.

On a rebounding play, Victory's Michelle King was called for a foul and Hagel hit both free throws for a one-point advantage.

Hagel then intercepted an inbounds pass and held on.

She was intentionally fouled and made one of two free throws with two seconds remaining.
