4A Girls Tournament - Kirtland Central

This first image comes from the final seconds of the game. The Lady Broncos had managed to move ahead after a very close game. Then they simply held on to the ball to keep the Moriarity girls from any chance of scoring. Out of frustration one of the players ran across the floor and literally tried to make a full-contact, football style, I'm going to get me a quarteback-style tackle! Hall-Jones was already running and managed to evade the worst of it, but was knocked to the floor. Obviously the officials called an intentional foul.
