Early in the last period Ava Benkel (scoring 6 of her game high 16 points) did everything possible for Best Glatt, but Atara Forman (team high 14 points) answered each basket with points of her own. When Maya Best scored, she cut the Doghouse lead to 3, and Ava Benkel then cut it to 1. In the final seconds, Best Glatt had one last chance but could not score. Doghouse held on for the championship.

The coaches, sponsors and families showed unwavering support, and the girls mastered a great season and a great game.
