Liverpool girls edged by CBA in AA playoffs

Every time Liverpool tried to restore its margin - like when Price got five straight points early in the fourth quarter - CBA would quickly respond and close the gap again, finally tying it 42-42 on Ellen Voorheis' 3-pointer with 4:22 left.

Defenses took over through much of the homestretch, and Liverpool suffered a big blow when, with 1:23 left, Nicole Ciricillo, who had 11 points, fouled out.

CBA inched ahead 45-44 after a Romeo free throw, but the Warriors regained the lead with 55 seconds left on Seymour's jumper from the right corner.

On the ensuing CBA possession, Liverpool could not pull down a rebound despite three missed shots. Finally, with 13.1 seconds left Voorheis, after another offensive rebound, was fouled, and she sank both free throws to put the Brothers ahead by one.

With nine seconds left, Liverpool called its last time-out. It worked the ball around until CBA, with a foul to give, used it with 2.1 seconds left, setting up the last attempt.

Seymour finished with 12 points, while Zywicki and Price both got 10 points. The Warriors conclude its season with an 11-8 mark and will see five seniors, including Zywicki, Chalifoux, Ciricillo and Tassone, depart.
