After seeing the deficit grow to 49-38, Liverpool made one more big push, a 10-1 run that closed the margin to two, 50-48. But Will Hawkins' lay-up and back-to-back steals from Jayson Jackson sparked Proctor's response, and it would get clear.
Liverpool did have a well-balanced attack, as Ian Hamm led with 10 points and Cam Jones added nine points. Adam Misener and Tyler Wallis each got eight points, with Richard Green and John Foley earning seven points apiece.
Connor Rogers, a cornerstone of the Warriors' attack all season, had just one field goal, and the team ultimately paid for 31 turnovers. Jackson (13 points), T'Andre Richardson, Wendell Wright (12 points each) and Walkery Mills (10 points each) hit double figures on Proctor's side.
The boys Warriors finished 12-7, and would always wonder how things might have turned out had its leading scorer, Jesse Gates, not been sidelined with mononucleosis for the last month of the season.
Liverpool's girls, who went 10-9, should be a prime contender next season. Just one senior starter, Aubrey Barrett, graduates, with standouts like Zywicki, Tassone, Circillo and Lyteshia Price expected to return.
