Stellar defense was the hallmark of Sacred Heart's win over Delco Christian last night in the semifinal round of the District 1 AA basketball playoffs. The top-seeded Lions only gave up two points in the first half in a rousing 44-19 victory over the fourth-seeded Knights.
Kayleigh Doyle '20 led the way with 5 steals, 6 assists and 12 points, while fellow senior Carina Fichera dominated the boards with 15 rebounds as well as 9 points. Ainsley Davis '22 chipped in with a dozen points in the win, which earns SHA its shot at a fourth-straight District 1 title.
Sacred Heart will now face second-seeded Bristol in the championship game this Saturday, February 22, at noon at Bensalem High School. A win will not only secure another District 1 championship but will also earn the team a berth in the upcoming PIAA state basketball tournament.
Congrats SHoops and good luck!
