Snows girls top St. Francis to win tournament championship

The championship game was a rematch of last week’s game won by OLS. Snows had trailed for most of the game and came back to win by one point on a fourth quarter basket by Weinman. Snows entered the game as the only unbeaten team in the double-elimination tourney. St. Francis had fought back to the final game through the loser’s bracket.

DeSales jumped out to a 2-0 lead early in the first quarter, but Snows regained the lead and never looked back. Michelle Gasperetti returned to the lineup and led OLS with six points. Tina Khiani, Kaitlin Frangella, Nicole Kaouris and Weinman also scored for OLS. Christine and Jessica Wrynn also played extremely well for Snows. Khiani was a force in the middle for OLS, as she blocked several shots and grabbed the majority of rebounds.

Snows defeated St. Stan’s (Maspeth), Our Lady of Mercy (Forest Hills) and St. Francis DeSales twice en route to the tournament championship. Sacred Heart (Glendale), Our Lady of Hope (Middle Village), St. Pancras (Glendale) and Resurrection-Ascenscion (Rego Park) also participated in the tournament.
