Lady Jays win thriller

Lady Jay Mary Beth Lafeur scored on a lay-up with one second left to force a tie game after the Lady Bearcats came storming back from a 31-13 deficit.
After being fouled on the play, Lafleur then calmly hit the free throw to lift St. Edmund to a one point lead and AnnaBelle Fontenot then stole the inbounds pass as the Lady Jays grabbed a District 4-1A 43-42 win over the rival Basile Lady Bearcats.
In the beginning it didn’t seem the game would be determined at the final buzzer as the Lady Jays opened with an 18-1 run.
