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.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
