(Park Hills, Mo.) The Regional Radio Top 10 Broadcast Games reaches #2, and it was arguably the most exciting basketball game played in the Parkland this season.
The Ste. Genevieve Dragons beat the Steelville Cardinals 78-74 in double overtime to win the Central Christmas Tournament girls’ championship game, but not after a million twists and turns.
The Dragons came in 8-0, and they showed why they were unbeaten with a strong start from 2 of their star juniors.
It was only a 48-39 deficit for the Cardinals as the fourth quarter began, and they refused to cool off.
But Steelville had the hot hand, specifically the right hand of their sophomore sharpshooter.
But Ste. Genevieve would not back down.
But there was more drama left.
And even as the game went to double OT and Sydney Booker scored, Sydney Bumgardaner and the Dragons would not be denied a tournament championship.
