Brentwood girls hoops season ends at semis

Brentwood girls basketball season ended in the Class 3 semifinal at John Burroughs on Wednesday by a free throw in the last seconds of the game, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The game was close, with Whitfield leading by two with less than a minute left.

With seconds remaining, Whitfield freshman forward Aijha Blackwell pulled down a free throw rebound over Eagles senior Sophia Rivera with 2.9 seconds left, was fouled, and sunk her free throw to win it for the Warriors, 54-51.

If Rivera had won the ball, Brentwood senior Abby Harper was alone under the Whitfield basket, waiting for her chance at a game-winning shot.
