A perfect season was on the line Friday night as No. 2 Kell (23-0, 14-0) put their 22-game winning streak on the line against a surging No. 10 Carrollton (14-9, 10-4) who had won seven-straight heading into the Region 7-AAAAA battle. In what turned out to be the best girls game of the year that I’ve seen to date, the two teams played tug-of-war with the lead with Kell getting the last pull as Amaya Moss made two free throws with 2.7 seconds left to lift the Lady Longhorns to an emotional 54-52 win. Here are five major takeaways from the big game.

Fast and Furious

Both teams mixed up defenses throughout but mainly settled in on pressing one another. Kell used more of a 2-2-1 form while Carrollton had a 1-2-2 shape. Airballs were flying to start the game as both rosters were too amped up. Turnovers flew as well, as the pressure was effective for both teams. Carrollton led 23-21 at the half after a De’Mauri Flournoy three before the buzzer and the Trojans nursed a 41-38 lead into the fourth quarter. The largest lead of the game belonged to Carrollton at 33-26 at the 5:13 mark
