If you missed the Quarterfinals game of the Touchstone Energy All “A” Classic Basketball Girls’ Tournament between our own Frankfort High School Lady Panthers and the girls from Bishop Brossart on Friday, January 25, 2013, then you missed one of the most exciting basketball games ever to be seen!
The Lady Panthers played with such heart and class against a very tough team. It came down to the last 18 seconds of the game. With Frankfort High down by two with a score of 37-39, but having possession of the ball, they hit a 3-point basket after a time-out to take the lead 40-39. But Bishop Brossart was able to get the ball back and run it down the court for a 2-point shot at the buzzer, essentially robbing the Lady Panthers of the win. There were several minutes of confusion after the game as it was questioned as to whether or not the ball had left the BB player’s hands before the buzzer. In the end, the score stood 40-41. Frankfort High School Lady Panthers should hold their heads high though! They have represented our town well in a state-wide tournament held in their own backyard. And, in doing so, they had the support of more fans than anyone else could bring with them! We LOVE our Lady Panthers!
