Frank D. Parent Tops St. Jane Frances in 2012 Championship Game Thriller

 

 

On a collision course throughout the season, Frank Parent School of Inglewood and St. Jane Frances of North Hollywood finally had the chance to settle things on the court, going to battle for the FIYA Boys Basketball Championship at Staples Center.

While neither team was intimidated by the big court or bright lights, St. Jane got off to a quick lead and stayed ahead for much of the afternoon. With their season on the line, Frank Parent made a late comeback, tying the game in the final minute to force overtime.

Scoring first in the extra period to take their first lead of the game, Parent was able to hold on and capture the title. This follows their FIYA Flag Football championship from the fall.

Congratulations to both teams on excellent seasons.
