Community Christian School (25-2) will put it all on the line Monday in Willow Park as the Lady Warriors square-off against Cornerstone Christian Academy (14-9) for the TCAF District 1 D2 championship.
The two teams beat each other in district play and finished with matching 3-1 records. Rather than play a tie-breaking seeding game, Cornerstone pitched the idea of a co-championship and also offered to take the No. 2 seed for the playoffs.
CCS was agreeable to the arrangement, and the schools submitted a written request to the TCAF. The league passed out a ruling last week, ruling the two teams would need to decide the championship on the court.
CCA upset the Lady Warriors in their final district contest 43-32 on a night when CCS was ice-cold on offense while the Lady Crusaders were getting help from several questionable officiating calls.
Coach Kayla Buchanan doesn’t resort to excuses, and five first-half points showed the Lady Warriors weren’t on their game. The Lady Warriors are capable of a win after downing CCA 47-38 in their first district meeting.
Despite the two teams vastly different records, they do appear evenly matched, and tonight’s game at 6 p.m. at Trinity Christian school in Willow Park will be one of the area’s best contests this week.
