On Saturday night, the Campolindo girls basketball team nearly continued a string of NCS titles for Campolindo during this 2010-11 school year.
Trailing by 13 points entering the fourth quarter, it looked like the Cougars’ hopes of winning the championship were slim. The Cougars outscored number one seed, Bishop O’Dowd, 21-8, in the fourth quarter to force overtime.
The game remained tied for the beginning of overtime until the Cougars jumped out to a lead. A key 3-pointer from Bishop O’Dowd with a minute remaining gave the Dragons a lead they wouldn’t let go of.
The Cougars’ season will continue in the Nor-Cal Championships next week.
