The unbeaten Eagles rolled past other city league teams in previous weeks, but the Crusaders craved revenge.

Both teams handed off the lead throughout the game. The final score came down to the final moments of the game. With a little more than a second remaining, Carroll fouled Kapaun sending Evan Dalian to the line.

Dalian sinks the first freebie, but misses the second. Bishop Carroll lobs the ball into play, but it lands in Crusader Ava Ayala's hands and KMC wins 33-31 for the first time in the last eight meet ups.
