Both teams broke though on Tuesday. Jackson against Green who has been a thorn in their side the past few years. St. Joseph’s Academy shocked the world and dropped the undefeated Hoban Knights in OT.
St. Joseph’s Academy comes in at 16-8, while Jackson is 18-6.
Ella Neitzel played tremendous for St. Joe’s as well as did PG Abbey Flannery. Ryan Elbert came up big in the 2nd half and Ava Haddad fought through foul trouble to make an impact Tuesday.
Jackson is still led by their three-headed monster, senior Emma Dretke and juniors Lauren Pallotta and Leena Padibandla. Sophomore Megan Campbell has really stepped up in this playoff run for the Polar Bears. Padibandla is coming off the best game of her career and will have lots of the Jaguar attention.
