From ’95 To ’19: PORTA Captures First Regional Title In 24 Years As Free Throws Get It Done Late Against Williamsville


 

For the first time since 1995, the PORTA Bluejays girls basketball team are regional champions. The Bluejays took a ten point lead in the third quarter against Williamsville, only to see Lilly Doneghue bring the Bullets back within two. But with under a minute remaining leading by two, PORTA knocked down just enough free throw to squeak out a 38-35 win.

Kassidy Kirchner and Isabel Hudspeth led the way for PORTA with 11 points each, while Lexy Henrikson led all scorers with 15 points as Doneghue added 13.
